New York band Erica Smith and the 99 Cent Dreams has taken a bit of a left turn from our usual left turns of folk/pop/country/psychedelia -- we made a jazz record culled mostly from the Great American Songbook. 

We rehearsed and recorded this short album more or less in seclusion, having played only one jazz gig ever: to a late-night Tuesday audience stoned on milk and cookies. They liked it, and so do we, and so will you. 

We are committed to releasing this record in 2012. It's a testament to the excellence of the musicians -- in particular our brilliant drummer, Dave Campbell, whom we lost in 2010 -- and probably will be our last album for awhile (Erica is dropping her next release, a baby boy, in January). 

Have a look, enjoy, and help us meet our goal in time to put this record out for the holidays!

With love,

Erica Smith and the 99 Cent Dreams

(Dann Baker, Dave Campbell, Erica Smith, Alan Young)
