Tom Casale's T. Rex Smash! "The Great American Circus"

$4,285

58

          My name is Tom Casale and I’m the composer, director and upright bassist for the jazz group T. Rex Smash! . We have a new album coming out called T. Rex Smash! “The Great American Circus.” It’s a three disc set of original material written by me and played by some of the best musicians I know.

           We are hoping to release everything by early March if all goes as planned.  At this point we have recorded and mixed the music. Now we are working on the art and the music is in the mastering house. When that's all done it's off to the presses for cd replication and uploading to iTunes, Pandora, Spotify etc.

             We are raising money to help offset the costs of recording, mastering and pressing of the album. We appreciate anything you can do to help and look forward to being able to share this music with you. Thank you!
