Edison wax cylinder recording

Here is video of Mucca Pazza recording Tube Sock Tango at Edison's 3rd compound in Orange, NJ.
We have been spending all weekend recording video for this audio.

We will premier this new music video at our Double Door show on Halloween!

Recording on a 1906 Edison wax cylinder recording device this weekend may have been the coolest thing I've ever done. Mark Messing may have a future in century-old voice-over!

Long weekend is just beginning.

Had a weird, wonderful weekend full of corporate jingles, Mahler/Sibelius, & Latin Jazz!

Thanks to everyone who made this possible, you know who you are.

Home from an amazing trip to St. John, US Virgin Islands! Played a little guitar (literally. It was 3/4 sized) but mainly filled up my time with hiking, kayaking, camping, chasing animals, and drinking rum.  It was a great little vacation!

I think it's the first time I've gone 5 straight days without practicing a horn for years.

Well, right back into the thick of it. I've updated my Upcoming shows sidebar with a myriad of in-town shows and mini tours with Mucca.
Can't wait!!!

More Hideout memories

Andre Williams review
What an amazing show! I was honored to be onstage at the Hideout as a Goldstar on my birthday this year.
The review mentions the band included "a fine horn section."
Did I mention honored?

Another great pic from CB Lindsay.
Make-out Party at the Hideout, 2012.  What an unbelievably fun night of aural delights!

Livin' Lucky

I get to play Beat Kitchen, Chopin Theatre, Fitzgerald's, Metro, Martyr's, and Double Door.
All in January!

What did I do to be so lucky!
I hope I get to see all my friends this month!

p.s. I know what you're thinking: What? No Schuba's or Hideout?
Next month!
