Some Sketches uploaded to the SoundCloud

So back when I wasn’t out of my mind I would sometimes record music just because I could and I wanted to.  I would even record things that I didn’t think were totally awesome.  These are some of those things.  I thought it a shame to let them go on deaf ears, so I’ve made a little soundcloud set to put them all here on the bloggy blog.

So, here they is.  All recorded between 2006 and 2008 in Somerville MA with nothing but an SM57 and a laptop.  You’ll notice many mistakes and missed notes as well as lots of thing that don’t make sense… I hadn’t really worked em out.

Things coming

Ok, so my life has been anything but quiet, but my blog here has been pretty dead.  I’m in the midst of catching up on everything that didn’t happen in 2009 when I was on the road constantly, as well as when the little man was born.  But that doesn’t mean things stopped completely.

In June, I’m headed out on the road with the Klezmer Madness, and then back to Chicago for some work in the public schools.  Definitely looking forward to that.  Then it’s back to the kitchen with big man Osvaldo Golijov for some new music involving some of my absolute favorite peeps including MJWB, Jamey Haddad and Kayhan Kalhor.  Needless to say I am honored to be sitting next to these people and it makes me realize that things are good.

be good.
