This effort is to fund the recording, mixing, mastering and reproduction of Jefferson Rose Band’s second album, 'Feel Like Dancing'. We are excited to release 11 songs that will take you on a musical journey to dance rhythms from Spain, Latin America, Africa and the Caribbean. We mix in some funk and rock too, for good measure.
To make this independent release come to life, we need your support!
The musicians on this album represent some of the best of Seattle’s jazz, funk, rock and world music scenes. It is a rare opportunity for great players such as Alex Kitchen, Naomi Siegel, Tobi Stone, Aaron Walker-Loud, Ahkeenu Musa, Cameron Brownfield, Samantha Boshnack, Leslie Kitchen and Mahamadou Kone to collaborate on a project and it is important to document this music with a high-quality studio album.
We will use this record as a vehicle to apply for festivals and to tour around the country and abroad. Our goal in 2014 is to take this music to the world. With the incredible level of musicianship, the variety of songs in both English and Spanish and the the fact that this music makes you want to dance, we feel we are poised to reach new heights as a band.
Also, it is important to note that to respect this music, the players and to guarantee a high-quality product from the studio, Seattle music engineering icon, Mell Dettmer is recording the album.
Risks and challenges
Last time we used Kickstarter, the calculations I made were insufficient to cover little things like postage to deliver Cds, etc. and I had to come out of pocket for those costs. I have factored that in here and feel like everything else is on schedule for this to be a successful release.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
