It is now official, and just in time for the holidays: the Live At Eddie’s CD is released! I cannot imagine a better holiday gift than the gift of music, and the music of such a “gifted” crew to boot. (Sorry couldn’t help myself.)
For the release of “Rescue Me” in November 2007, I joined with five other musicians to form the band known as Urban Blue. This band, consisting of me on keyboards and vocals, Lee Hansen on sax, Adam Coletta on guitar, Lee Nunn on bass, Kristi Budd on vocals, and Chris Kearney on drums, performed for my CD release party at Eddie’s Attic. We returned to Eddie’s in April 2008, this time joined by blues/rock drummer Towson Engsberg. As Eddie’s sound man Shalom Aberle does such a terrific job recording the live performances, I decided to assemble the ten best recordings from the two shows into a live album. The album is released under a creative commons license, and I encourage you to share the music and spread the good word.
Also, this time, I decided to go a more environmentally friendly route, and packaged these CDs in recyclable cardboard sleeves. They’re smaller to ship, won’t break like those annoying plastic CD cases, and still provide you with all the information you need. So when you buy one, you can feel good about your smaller carbon footprint!
