I am happy to announce the release of the Lucky 7s new CD entitled Farragut. It was recorded live in Chicago in March of 2006, mostly at the Hungry Brain, with one track coming from a performance at Enemy.
The musicians are: Josh Berman – cornet, Keefe Jackson – tenor sax and bass clarinet, Jeb Bishop – trombone, Jeff Albert – trombone and tuba, Jason Adasiewicz – vibes, Matthew Golombisky – bass and effects, and Quin Kirchner – drums.
The CD features compositions by Jeb Bishop, Jeff Albert and Matthew Golombisky played by some of Chicago and New Orleans’ most exciting young improvisers. There is more info about the band, and musical excerpts at http://lucky7s.org .
The CD can be purchased from the label’s website: http://www.lakefrontdigital.com .
The album can be purchased as an mp3 download at http://pepperenterprises.com . These are 256k mp3s that are DRM free.
There are also 5 tunes from these same sessions that are available as free Creative Commons licensed downloads. These can be found at http://lucky7s.org/music.php .
The band will be celebrating the release of this CD with three performances in Chicago, during the first week of September. We will perform at the Chicago Jazz Festival at noon on Sunday September 3, at The New Velvet Lounge on Tuesday September 5, and at Elastic on Wednesday September 6.
