My new CD Megaphone Heart is nearly mastered! Danijel Zezelj wwwdzezelj.com will making the artwork and the JLE will be touring in Europe and the US this Fall with some advance copies but the official release is Feb 2012 in NYC at 92 Y Tribeca – but of course there will be many CD release shows all over I hope! The new recording hosts the same great band as on Shop of Wild Dreams: a line up of some of the most in-demand players in the jazz, experimental, folk and pop scenes in New York and the West Coast. Produced by Todd Sickafoose, MEGAPHONE HEART features Todd also on bass (longtime bass player for Ani DiFranco), Allison Miller on drums (currently touring extensively with Brandi Carlyle) , Erik Deutsch on keyboard (of Charlie Hunter’s band), and Brandon Seabrook (Frank London’s Brotherhood of Brass, Jazz Passengers) on banjo and guitar.
a fun show of this very new project, with Jessica Lurie (sax), Ben Syversen (trumpet), Michael Bates (bass), Sean Dixon (drums) Fun free jazz!
