About

Funds are being raised to produce a second effort between trombonist and composer Julian Priester and drummer Jimmy Bennington.  Their first effort, Portraits and Silhouettes, was released in 2007 by ThatSwan! records and received an Honorable Mention in "All About Jazz - NY" Best Recordings 2007.  A continuation of this first recorded effort, Blue Veils and Bright Stars could be released in 2013 if the campaign is successful.  

Mr. Priester is considered a national treasure.  He has played with many legends including Bo Diddley, Sun Ra, Herbie Hancock and Duke Ellington.  Please help us to preserve and produce this work also featuring Paul Blaney of the NOW Orchestra.  

Jimmy Bennington and Julian Priester appeared together at Fred Anderson's Velvet Lounge and the 30th Annual Chicago Jazz Festival.

Risks and challenges

CD design will have to wait until after the campaign to compile the list of contributors' names. Remastering will be placed in the capable hands of George Belle. Delays expected here will depend on time and the nuances of the music. Another potential delay is in the actual release of the work, which will be held back until forthcoming liner notes can be obtained. Also, awaiting reviews may stall a proper launch. An extensive contact list will be used for distribution, sales, reviews and radio airplay. A successful campaign will compensate all artists involved and release the work inside 2013.
