I’m thrilled to announce the release of my new record, “Noose Of Light”, in digital format, cds, and most importantly, 12″ vinyl!
The vinyl is a special project; the cover photo is by renowned photographer Rosalie Winard and looks incredible in the large format, and the plating and pressing was done at RTI, the best audiophile vinyl press in the world. Due to the length and character of the songs on this record, and because I am a firm believer in analog audio, I really believe the vinyl is the way to go. If you like to shop AND listen in analog, the record is available at Grooves on Market st, Aquarious on Valencia st, and Amoeba on Haight st.
This album is the follow up to “Your Obedient Ghost”, and features original music for my trio and sextet- played at a level I couldn’t have even imagined, by Erik Jekabson, Adam Shulman, Andrew Zimmerman, John Wiitala, and Hamir Atwal.
The records were recorded by Ian Pellici at Tiny Telephone in SF, and mastered by A.T. Michael MacDonald in NY. I’m absolutely thrilled with the work all of these guys did, and we have ended up with a couple of real jazz records; recorded live in studio, no overdubs, no isolation, all real and in the moment and full of life. The music was recorded and mixed to tape, so it has that classic warmth that is missing from so many of today’s records.
Every Wednesday night, I play at Club Deluxe on Haight st, performing the best in underplayed jazz repertoire with a fabulous quartet, featuring Adam Shulman, Smith Dobson V, and either Eric Markowitz or John Wiitala. No cover, music from 9-12:30.
Diana Gameros and I have returned to the Roosevelt Tamale Parlor! There will be one performance per week, either on Friday or Saturday, so check my calendar for details.
