My brain must have hiccupped there. I was planning to write ... Several listens IN... of course
Several listens I on the album (digital for now) I have to say: it's brilliant.
Just a heads-up...a bunch of packages went out this morning, including Sarah's and Brent's.
We're sending them all out before 9/30. I'll be sending surveys out for addresses!
Hi, do you know when the physical copies of the cd will be sent out? I don't remember if I filled out the survey or not give my address to you. Just wondering?
Got my poster today, looks great! Can't wait to hear the music :-)
We just finished recording overdubs for the choir and instrumentals! Starting mixing on Feb 9. I'll send out another post with photos!
Soooo... it's been pretty quiet around here since November.
Thanks John! The original 1950 recording of the suite and discussion about the concert premiered on my radio show (Part 3 of 6), which can be heard here:
For those interested in a different side of Raymond Scott, I just came across a recent release of an album featuring his Suite for Violin and Piano. I'll enjoy this quite a bit....
Thanks so much Michelle for the great words! Your father's story sounds very inspirational...what a great list of names! That was an amazing period in American music. All best, B
I just wanted to say that this is a really cool project and I'm proud to be a backer. My father, Franz Jackson, was a Chicago jazz legend who started his career at age 16 with Albert Ammons and continued playing until just before he passed away in 2008 at age 95. His hey-day was in the 30's and 40's and he played with all the jazz greats from that era and beyond: Duke Ellington, Louis Armstrong, Fats Waller, Jimmie Noone, Fletcher Henderson, Earl Hines, Billie Holiday.....so, this project struck a chord with me. I'm looking forward to hearing the finished product and wish you continued success!
We are working on trying to get out to San Francisco in summer/fall 2013. We'll keep you posted. Thanks for your support!
Do you think you'll make it out to San Francisco to play a show or 2, 3?
You may be right. We are a very worldly bunch, haha. Thanks for the support Sarah...
I am pretty sure that is the first time anyone has ever used "John Zorn" and "Jay-Z" in the same sentence :-) Good luck with the fundraiser!
