@deeohgee - NSB is about as OUT as they come!


@apalazzolo - Thanks for checking it out and thanks for the questions.

To answer: no coordination, no discussion beforehand. We just start and go where it takes us. In the past we might discuss a "feel or vibe" but for this session we just played with no prior idea of what would happen. No designated 'leader' is set, although during the course of a piece one of us might get up front of the others and lead by default. It is purely listening to each other and reacting in real time. Cheers.

I find that really intriguing since the songs are genuinely diverse, even from the beginning. It's impressive. One last question: what percentage of your free jams yield keepers; did you discard many failed efforts to get these handful of keepers for this latest record?

Anyway, keep up the great work!

@apalazzolo - thanks for the kudos, appreciate it. For this particular session we played maybe a dozen pieces and used 7 of them for this release. So in this instance a pretty high percentage were keepers! An interesting thing about this release is that the sequence is in the order that we played them with a few tracks removed in between. We ended up not re-sequencing the remaining tracks.

Bruce Haack

He was an electronic music pioneer that recorded mostly kids records in the 60s & 70s on his Dimension 5 label. His solo albums in the 70s got even weirder and dark. There's an interesting film documentary of his life. Bruce Haack also played one of Mr Rogers neighbors in the 60s. Had some type of homemade electronic device in a suitcase.

My band played a gig this last Saturday (no audience) maybe not totally out there but out there enough, so I'll leave it here:
