Check out the following video of his band. It was recorded at Strobe Recording Studio in Chicago, which happens to be the same place the soon to be released (well, soon as in sometime this decade) Lucky 7s CD was recorded.
There is going to be a very cool summer concert series at Zeitgeist this year, and it is curated by the marvelous Helen Gillet. I am playing on it on May 27th.
A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I would post some excerpts from my April 19 quartet show at Brown Rice in Chicago, with Matt Golombisky, Quin Kirchner, and Greg Ward.
There are mp3s of 4 pieces from that gig here: Jeff Albert » Brown Rice – Chicago – 19 April 08
I thought I had gone time traveling and landed on a Monday sometime before August 2005, when I turned on my car radio Wednesday evening. The familiar voice brought a smile to my face, then “Silver at Six” put a lump in my throat and a tear in my eye. “Back before then, we heard…”
It’s been almost three years, and I usually feel like we as a city are moving on and making positive progress, and then something will remind me of a particular person, or place, or thing that was a vital part of the scene, that simply isn’t here anymore, and a wave of sadness sweeps through me.
Fortunately many of these people are doing really well in other places. We still miss them though.
