It's release day!!!
I'm proud to announce that, as of this morning, my BRAND NEW album, "Clarinetflix & Chill," is available pretty much everywhere music can be downloaded or streamed in the digital multiverse! It features five brand-new original instrumental compositions by yours truly drawing upon a variety of musical influences, not the least of which are swing and klezmer. It was all recorded "live in the studio," as they say, in a single afternoon.
All else being equal, please download the tracks from the rather artist-friendly platform of Bandcamp!!!
But you can also find 'em on a host of other platforms and I'd love for you to listen and share these songs any way you like!
"Clarinetflix & Chill" features Ellington Carthan on keys, Christie Macdonald on guitar, Eliot Seppa on double bass, and Joey Antico on drums. It was recorded and engineered by Jeff Gruber at Blue House Productions on January 24, 2022 in Kensington, Maryland.
Look, folks -- I opted not to print any physical product this time around. No CD's, no vinyl, no cassettes. I didn't even make 8-tracks. So in order to accomplish my sisyphean musical ambitions, I really need everyone to download and/or stream these songs on the platform of their choosing. You can even keep your devices muted while doing so. Share 'em on social media, send 'em to your friends, add 'em to playlists, and put 'em on your office Slack channels.
