So with all the recording-related program activities, I did not quite get around to posting the audio from our December Jazz Gallery hit before we played there again this weekend as part of the Search And Restore website launch -- check it out, it's alive.
So, then. I'm-a just dump all this audio on the internets all at once like it's some kind of big truck. (Shut your mouth -- Ted Stevens references are timeless.) Here are the recordings from Dec. 12-13 and Feb. 6. There are a couple of caveats:
One, the recording of the second set on Feb. 6 did not turn out, and I am beginning to get seriously pissed at my super-flaky digital recorder. Or perhaps my mic is dying. Anyway, hopefully the Jazz Gallery recorded the show -- if so, I'll have that audio for you later.
Two, I am keeping the Jazz Gallery-commissioned tunes ("Obsidian Flow" and "Jacobin Club") under wraps for the moment. If you weren't at the gigs, y'all will have to wait for the record to come out to hear those two cuts. Not being a dick, I just want to save a few surprises for the album itself.
Also, a huge appreciation for trumpeter Matt Holman, last-minute sub for an ailing Nadje Noordhuis, he did an awesome job of sight-reading the book. I am hoping that recording of the second Feb. 6 set comes through eventually so you can hear his amazing solo on "Induction Effect."
