AVIDduo just recently finished recording our first CD together! We were able to use the amazing facilities at the Art Institute of Minneapolis with a great engineer, Brian Hallermann. Stay tuned for details as the project unfolds... everything should be ready by the end of the year! It will include some great original works for flute and saxophone, and we are very excited to share this music!
For those in the Minneapolis-St. Paul area, come out to Studio Z on Saturday, September 21 at 7:30PM to hear some really fantastic original works for flute and saxophone by a wide collection of composers! The program will include:
We're from the Internet - Josh Clausen
Cracked Brick - Anna E. Garman
Interactions - Lenka Sturalova
deepities - Ted Moore
Ever Present - Alvin Lucier
BAAYAMI: From the Sky - Mark Oliveiro
Janus - Paul Hayden
We will be joined by special guest Peter John on piano!
The following week, we will be in the studio recording all of these works for an upcoming CD that will be released at the end of the year, so stay tuned for more details on this project!
In the last few weeks, I have been listening to quite a bit of Bob Reynolds. I first heard Bob play on a concert with John Mayer in 2007 and was really blown away! I wrote down his name at the concert so that I would remember to look him up when I got home; I have been a fan ever since. I have several of his albums, but Can't Wait for Perfect from 2006 is the one I have come back to the most often. In the last couple of weeks that I have returned to this album, I have been working my way through each chart transcribing it along with the solo and having a blast getting to know some really great music. I wanted to share some of Bob's playing for anyone interested. Buy his stuff here and support him! It is seriously groovin.
