You can’t put a price on awkward cable access interviews.  Especially ones with Peter Schlamb, Devin Drobka and myself.  But, you can also skip to 16:30 to watch a whole SET of music from this show at Cafe Paradiso in Fairfield, IA from April 12, 2012.  It’s a beautiful venue! See for yourself.

On April 9th, 2012, I played a crazy show with breakbeat poet master Idris Goodwin, vibraphone master Peter Schlamb, and groove master Sean Mullins.  If you have a spare eight and a half minutes, check out our mashup of a Blackalicous number and Peter’s tune REL.  

Audio

A bootleg from a live show at the Record Bar in Kansas City, MO, featuring Ben van Gelder on saxophone, Wade Ridenhour on keys, Peter Schlamb on vibes, Tommy Crane on drums and myself on bass.  The tune is a van Gelder original titled Guiding Principle.

ARK is an ongoing project with Carlos Homs and Colin Stranahan.  We are, as they say, jacked up about the eventual release of our first album.  This track is called Insideways, by Mr. Homs.

Here’s a look at the inner workings of a Zodiac Ensemble video conference.  Obviously we know exactly what we’re doing.  

Our debut album is closer than ever to its release!  Only a couple more weeks of waiting.

My friend Peter Schlamb and his music are very important to me.  Here we are playing Peter’s tune A.A.B. with saxophonist Kyle Wilson and drummer/producer Sean Mullins.  From 1/6/12
