The World's Finest Apples is a new European-parlour-jazz band from Sacramento, California lead by guitarist, Nahum Zdybel.  We have recorded our first CD and we need funding to release it.  It was recorded at Paradise Studios in Sacramento, CA on March 4, 2011 and is currently in its final mixing stages.  We would like to have the new CD released by May 26th in time for the Sacramento Jazz Jubilee.  Please help us reach our goal of $1500 in 30 days.  Here is our budget breakdown:

Recording (3/4/11): $408 - Band paid out of pocket.

Initial Mixing (3/24/11): $374 - Band paid out of pocket.

Final Mixing (4/12/11): $204 - Band paid out of pocket.

Photography and Design: $200

CD Replication - 1000 copies in Eco-Wallet: $1300

Total: $1500

Please visit our "Updates" section for pictures, tunes, and videos!

The World's Finest Apples are:

  • Nahum Zdybel - Band Leader/Guitar
  • Keith Penney - Accordion
  • Greg Sabin - Tenor Guitar
  • Kellen Garcia - Upright Bass
  • Pete Agraan - Snare & Brushes

Apples Update!

We're just asking for the bare minimum.  In fact, we'll still be paying more out of pocket even if we receive full funding.  Here is a copy of the actual quotation for CD replication alone.

We'd like to be able to pay our photographer as well, so please don't refrain from donating if you see us approaching our goal.  We still have a long way to go, though!  We can do it!... together
