The Penguin Cafe Orchestra was originally a chamber group founded by Simon Jeffes in 1972, and was active up until Simon’s death in 1997. Simon’s son, Arthur Jeffes, has restarted the group, dropping orchestra from the name and going simply by The Penguin Cafe. Their first new release in decades, a full-length entitled The Imperfect Sea, will be out on  May 5th on Erased Tapes. “Cantorum” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
