Update #15

Did you mean to order the new Giuseppi Logan CD but didn't get around to it?

Comment

Hi Folks,

One last update to remind folks that have just been too dang busy that you can still  order the 2nd Giuseppi Logan brand new CD imported from our French label partner.  This is the brilliant follow up to our mutual Kickstarter project The Giuseppi Logan project

To order the CD....just go to our website www.edpettersen.com and select the Store link, where you can order one of a limited number of the French CD pressing we have secured for Giuseppi's Kickstarter supporters. Cost is $15.00 plus shipping. . For downloads, just purchase the CD and shoot us a note and what type of download you would like (MP3 or hi-res files by wetransfer or other file transfer mechanism).

Please note that we have resolved all Internet configuration issues that plagued Explorer users when trying to order previously.  

Last but not least there were some stragglers (by many moons) of people that did not answer the initial survey which determined where we shipped your Kickstarter reward.  If anyone has not received their original kickstarter reward, please send us a gentle email at edpettersen@srrecords.com.  We did get one or two returns and one or two very late orders but we do still have stock to take care of everyone!

Regards,

Mad Kind Edmund

This is the brilliant follow up to our mutual Kickstarter project The Giuseppi Logan project which many of you graciously supported. And They Were Cool recaptures the compositional genius of Logan's sixties heyday. This pure free jazz album pairs Logan with young sax talent Jessica Lurie, an accomplished artist in her own right and the dualing saxes add tension and push Giuseppi to his full potential. With improving health and a sound supporting cast, Larry Roland on bass and Ed Pettersen on guitar and effects, Logan's playing rivals the previous works for which he is reknown. Recorded at the highest fidelity and mastered by one of the great mastering engineers, And They Were Cool delivers on performance, fidelity and composition to create a rare gem for improv lovers to add to their collection. Label: Improvising Beings in partnership with the Mad King Edmund Collective.

Update #12

Giuseppi Logan Kickstarter #2 - "And They Were Cool

Comment

Hi All,

The next in the record in the Giuseppi Logan series was successfully recorded in June of this year as we reported earlier.  The new recording "And They Were Cool" features Giuseppi on both sax and piano and pairs him with the well known young multi-instrumentatlist Jessica Lurie for some rare jazz improv.   The Kickstarter to press vinyl for the project will close in just four days at http://kck.st/T0su73

In the event that the Kickstarter campaign for vinyl does not get funded, we will reach out to everyone who subscribed to let you know how you can purchase a CD or download online.  It's also possible that we will relaunch a Kickstarter or similar effort to press vinyl if the project gains press that is likely to make it viable.  In the meantime if you know just one person who still wants vinyl, it will only take about 50 pledges to make goal.  That's http://kck.st/T0su73 to pledge via Kickstarter and your Amazon payment account. And of course you will be charged only if the project funds by January 19th.

Regards,

Mad King Edmund
