About this project

All of my favorite jazz recordings, both live and in the studio, are of working groups! There is something special that comes through the recording. The interplay and communication is fresh and exciting as the musicians inspire each others' solo performances.

This is what I want to capture with our recording!

UPDATE! If you click PLAY above, you can listen to Colleen Clark, a very talented young vocalist, who sat in with us on April 4. We want to include her in this project and are going to record again LIVE at Gingko Blue (www.gingkoblue.com) in Portland, Maine on June 6, 6-9 PM. So we will have recorded on 4/4 and 6/6 of this year. What does that mean? I digress. In order to cover the expense of the additional recording, it would be helpful if we could raise another $600 above our goal. Thank you!

Our goal is to record our live performance in Portland, Maine: as a Piano Trio at Gingko Blue, Wednesday, April 4, 2012, 6-9 PM.

We will be recoding these selections (plus 2 more) from The Great American Songbook:

After You've Gone - Henry Creamer and Turner Layton
All Alone - Irving Berlin
Besame Mucho - Consuelo Velazquez
I'm Always Chasing Rainbows - Joseph McCarthy and Harry Carroll
Indian Summer - Al Dubin and Victor Herbert
They Didn't Believe Me - Herbert Reynolds and Jerome Kern

Standard Issue is a working jazz group in Portland, Maine, that I formed last August as a jazz expression of The Great American Songbook. We have been working steadily ever since.

The musicans for this date will be Emmett Harrity on Piano, Nick Merriam on Acoustic Bass, and yours truly, Rob Schreiber, on Traps.

Your support will pay for the recording, mastering, art, CD duplication, and the musicians. Travis Searle and Ken Gardiner of TrackZ Audio will be recording and mastering this project.  To hear my earlier recordings, please go to http://www.youtube.com/user/WRSedtainment and www.wrsedutainment.com

Your pledge will only be charged if our campaign is successful when it ends on May 16. 

Thank you so much for your consideration, and we hope that you will support our project!

P.S.  All backers will be thanked in the CD artwork (unless you wish to be annonymous)
