Featuring Elias Haslanger (sax), and Suzi Stern (voice)
Before Peter moved his family from Austin to Chicago in August, 2011, The Peter John Stoltzman Trio and Friends recorded a live concert at the gorgeous, intimate, living room venue known as Casa Karen. Elias Haslanger played brilliantly on tenor sax, and Suzi Stern sang her heart out. The sold out audience was rapt throughout - they didn't even clap for solos - but they exploded in joyful applause after every song. All funds from the concert's ticket and CD sales - approximately $800 - are being put toward the mixing of the CD. But hours of work remain to mix & master. The repertoire - including old and new "standards" - will require significant licensing fees. And the final CD will need professional design, packaging, and promotion. All told, the costs may run as high as $4000.
This Kickstarter campaign offers you a chance to contribute to these artists careers in a concrete way, and to get some seriously nice rewards in the process! The Peter John Stoltzman Trio and Friends thank you SO MUCH.
Yes, yes, yes!
1) I'm speechlessly grateful at the generosity of the backers so far.
2) All funds will go directly to the products and activities pertaining to this CD, including mixing/mastering, duplication, and licensing (for hard copies and online units). Additional funding will create the possibility of more units, but also a promotional campaign, and even CD release concerts in multiple cities. Exciting!
Stay tuned -- I will be polling backers soon for their input, as well as researching concrete possibilities and costs.
