Our new piece "Ides Plus Two" was written for the occasion of our planned appearance at Detroit's Max M. Fisher Music Center -- 2 days after the Ides of March, which was St. Patrick's Day (the piece has a fiddling sound that owes a bit to the Irish among others). Instead, it will get a delayed premiere at Barbes in Brooklyn, on May 18th.
The same show will feature the premiere of a second new tune (!! haven't done that in a few years), just hammered out in a frenzy by yours truly. This one plays with a laid-back swing feeling overlaid with a 12/8 clave feel, and a smattering of double-time rhythms. The name? I have no idea. Come to the show and find out!
This and more music, with Mark's rockin' African drumset, Marlene's lovely violin, and Matt's irrepressible bass will be on hand in the intimate and eminently listenable music room at Barbes in Park Slope Brooklyn. Please join us!
