This one has maybe the most tracks of any song I've ever made. [more inside]
An original song by my old band, Selected Letters. Alto Sax, Oboe, Violin, Guitar, Bass, Drums, and a good mix of tight arrangement and improvisation. I miss this band a lot, but it was great while it lasted.
Another teaser from the collab. [more inside]
Fingerstyle arrangement of a trad tune, features backing violin by Gretchen Lohse.
Classical music meets instrumental tango salsa rock. Live recording from the Ohio Action benefit show, October, Kenyon College. I took the solo on this track, replacing vocals with a violin "guest vocalist."
Another song from my college band, this one part of an aborted concept album concerning the Planet of the Robots, the Software of Sentience, and other sorts of robot-related stuff. Recorded in the basement of one of Cooper Union's buildings with a small "in studio" audience shouting "hooray!" at appropriate times.
This was my band in college, a surf-instrumental-spy-rock four-piece: bass, drums, guitar, and violin. I'm playing bass in this song.
