Help the Chuck Israels Jazz Orchestra make Joyful Noise - an album that pays tribute to the late Horace Silver - support this project and order your copy today to make this happen in 2014!
To those of you who supported our last album, "Second Wind" a Tribute to the Music of Bill Evans - thank you! Your support helped us to create an album that received a 4 1/2 star review in DownBeat Magazine and is currently under consideration for a Grammy nomination! We are back with an exciting new project - recording the music of Horace Silver as arranged by Chuck Israels for the Chuck Israels Jazz Orchestra.
A Joyful Noise will feature Chuck's original orchestrations of Horace Silver's early compositions, including "Sister Sadie," Moonrays," "Cookin' at the Continental," "Cool Eyes," "Doodlin'," "Home Cookin'," "Opus de Funk," "Room 608," "Strollin'," "Creepin' In," and "Nica's Dream" for the eight-piece ensemble. The performers will include John Nastos on alto sax/flute, David Evans on tenor sax/clarinet, Robert Crowell on baritone sax, Charlie Porter on trumpet, John Moak on trombone, Dan Gaynor on piano, Christopher Brown on drums and Chuck Israels on bass.
Why Kickstarter? Think of it as pre-sales - for a minimum contribution of $10 you are essentially ordering this album in advance. For just $1 you can get a digital download of one of the tracks. If you can give more, we have some other great rewards (check them out to the right). Every bit helps, so please give what you can. Your contributions will help to ensure that we have what it takes to get this album off the ground. As you can imagine, there are lots of costs to cover, including: the recording studio & engineer, producer, mixing & mastering, licensing fees, fees for the musicians, cost of CD design and printing, etc. A minimum of $12,500 is necessary to cover these expenses. Any funds raised above this minimum goal shall be used for a PR campaign for the album.

Thank you for your support!

Risks and challenges
If we are not able to reach our funding goal, we will not receive the money that has been pledged. This means there will be no album or that it will need to be privately funded.
If we are funded, there could be other challenges. There could certainly be delays, since we are using a lot of different services and contractors to produce our album - this is a multi-step process with lots of components that have to come together to deliver a completed CD project. There are any number of unforeseen costs. There could be licensing issues that may arise, as we are not performing original music.
In any case, if funded, the rewards will be delivered, perhaps earlier or later than the anticipated dates.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
