Thanks so much to those who pledged toward the project to press vinyl for "And They Were Cool", the new recording which features Giuseppi on both sax and piano for some rare jazz improv. Our message seems to have gotten lost in the blogosphere as we received many delighted comments on the The Giuseppi Logan Project but only about 20% of the vinyl pledgers have re-upped for "And They Were Cool". We know some of the former pledges were in support of Giuseppi and the music rather than vinyl itself, and the numbers are not looking great for vinyl demand right now even thought we think it's out there. The good news is that the record will come out on CD regardless.
However, if you think it's cool to press vinyl and want to know how you can help.... help us get the message out by sending along the Kickstarter link to just one fellow jazz lover. A crazy jazz lover like you must know one or more folks that share your enthusiasm.
If we don't reach goal in four days, we'll update you with next steps. If some possible press comes about after the project closes it's possible we will relaunch a shorter campaign on Kickstarter or similar venue. If the push to press vinyl does not succeed, we'll let you know how you can purchase CD or download online. But let's give it one last push...http://kck.st/T0su73 tweet it. email it, copy the widget and post it on your website.... it just takes one hit apiece to finish what we started. This is your project as much as ours.... go team!
