Dave King Trucking Company is the latest group formed by drummer/composer Dave King, known for his work in the groundbreaking jazz trios The Bad Plus and Happy Apple. Also featuring guitarist Erik Fratzke, bassist Adam Linz and saxophonists Chris Speed and Brandon Wozniak, DKTC turned heads in 2011 with a debut album called Good Old Light (Sunnyside). The group is poised to release a full-length follow-up in Fall 2013, and this Kickstarter project will help make it happen.
The backer rewards outlined here allow you to preorder the album and, if you like, choose additional rewards including music lessons, signed merchandise and other “interactive” experiences. Oh, and a gold tooth.
Because we believe in the simple idea that a physical LP is way cooler than a bunch of ones and zeros on a hard drive, all album preorders are for the vinyl edition, which will include a download code for digital versions of all album tracks.
