I was interviewed by Jason Crane for his podcast “The Jazz Session.” Follow the link below to hear it.
The Jeff Albert Quartet will have a new CD available soon. Here is a little video to stoke your curiosity.
While this post isn’t a podcast in the sense of me talking with theme music, etc., it does contain some mp3 links.
I just got back from Chicago, where I spend a week rehearsing/performing/recording/performing some more with the Lucky 7s. I feel really good about the new material, and expect that we’ll have a new CD out in a few months (now that I’ve said that, I am sure it will be a year).
For those of you that missed the shows (you know who you are), here are some live mp3s.
These were recorded at The Hungry Brain in Chicago on July 22, 2007. Keefe Jackson was unable to attend this performance, so Dave Rempis is playing tenor sax on these recordings.

I have been trying hard lately to get the word out about the Scratch My Brain podcasts, and the other day someone asked me, “what is a podcast? I don’t have an iPod, can I still listen?”
Yes, you can listen on anything that will play an mp3 file. Just click the link to download the mp3 to your computer, then listen however you like. I have linked to the Wikipedia podcast definition page below, to offer greater detail.
Podcasting’s essence is about creating content (audio or video) for an audience that wants to listen when they want, where they want, and how they want.
