LITTLE PLAYED LITTLE BIRD, is out now and starting to get some radio play.
It features my same smoking tenor player from my Serge Gainsbourg record, Rich Cole, plus 2009 Latin Grammy-nominated pianist Weber Iago, from Brazil, and also my long-time friends, collaborators and co-cruise ship drones Tim Willcox and Bill Athens on sax and bass. The tunes are all things you'd have to be a pretty serious Ornette fan to know well, plus the very famous Lonely Woman, which I couldn't leave out- I've been playing that one forever.
Right now several tracks have been added to the avant-garde channel at JAZZRADIO.com, and taintradio.org who were the first to add the last record as well, and KKRN 88.5 in northern California, and a student just reported hearing something on KMHD 89.1 here in in Portland. The CDs were only mailed out to the radio people recently, and I expect we'll be seeing quite a bit more in the coming weeks.
If you'd like to buy it (it's a great way to support the blog, you know!), you can order a hard copy via PayPal at the "purchase CDs" area in the sidebar; you can also purchase a download through my Bandcamp.com page.
