(included with all reward tiers)
    (horn tooting below)
    "Scheme For Thought" was called “disorienting and fascinating” by MOJO magazine, "a work of mellow magnificence" by Time Out London, "radically calming" by BBC Music, "wistful, dreamy, beautifully executed music" by The Guardian. It was also listed in Stephen Graham's top ten list for 2007 in Jazzwise Magazine.

    Duo House Performance

    Did you know that before he became a swashbuckling, jazz record executive, cofounder Elan Mehler was a pianist of minor repute? Now, for the mere price of €1,250 he will come to your house, dragging Newvelle Recording artist and acclaimed saxophone superstar Noah Preminger. They’ll play a little music and schmooze and join you for a good time (no guarantee that Noah will either schmooze or have a good time).

    Travel to be discussed if outside of the Massachusetts, Connecticut, Rhode Island, or New York Metropolitan Areas Piano recommended!

    ALSO! If you live in the Chicago area, Elan Mehler will make the trip to Chicago to play with Newvelle Recording Artist, saxophonist Andrew Zimmerman. Featured on “Scheme For Thought,” Elan and Andrew have a long history of playing together, and it's about damn time they met each other’s children.
