    A STEVE LACY MIXTAPE + THE ALBUM. You'll get the new double-disc set and you'll also get a personally curated mix-tape of Ideal Bread's favorite Steve Lacy tracks. We're asked pretty regularly to recommend Lacy albums and given the size of his discography, it's a daunting task. So we'll send to you our favorite stuff in digital format (FLAC, MP3, etc.) drawn from years of geeking out to his records.

    A WINE TUTORIAL + THE ALBUM. I've spent the past 7 years working in the wine industry and was raised by a bonafide oenophile (wine nerd for you english-speakers). I like talking about wine, thinking about it and reading about it. I'll meet with you in person or via Skype and not only demystify wine, but also make it more fun and interesting! This tutorial also comes with a copy of Beating the Teens mailed to your door plus a ticket to one of our shows!

    A LESSON WITH ANY MEMBER OF IDEAL BREAD + THE ALBUM. Kirk, Tomas, Adam and I have played and studied with a vast assortment of musicians and other artists. Combined, we've spent a lifetime studying our respective instruments. We've spent years learning how to play Steve Lacy's music. Come and check out the fruits of the labor! Want to learn how to break down complicated rhythms? Talk to Tomas! Want to learn how to play with precision and grace at even the quietist of volumes? Ask Kirk! Want to develop better arco technique? Adam's your guy! Need help adapting tricky Steve Lacy lines to your instrument? I definitely have some thoughts and tips about that. The lessons will be 60 min. long and can be in-person or via any telecommunication device of your choice and can be with any member of the band. Lesson also comes with an autographed copy of "Beating the Teens" mailed straight to your door plus a ticket to one of our shows plus the mixtape!

    COMPLETE BOOK OF SHEET MUSIC TO "BEATING THE TEENS" + THE ALBUM. You'll get a handsome copy of all the sheet music used to make Beating the Teens. This will include all the computer-generated charts complete with band-members' annotations and notes pasted in. Essentially you're getting the equivalent of a director's notebook here except you're also getting all the actors' notes as well. Each book will be put together by hand and placed in a binder and mailed to your door. Along with this, you'll get the charts minus the annotations in digital format e-mailed to you. These will be Ideal Bread's arrangements of the tunes which are based on my transcriptions of Steve Lacy's work.

When you sign up for this reward, you'll be able to select any Steve Lacy song and we will go ahead and record it for you during the "Beating the Teens" sessions. It will be professionally mixed and mastered and then e-mailed and snail-mailed directly to you! This also comes with an autographed copy of "Beating the Teens" mailed to your door plus the mixtape and a ticket to one of our shows!
