Happy April! I hope the vaccination angels have been to visit you, and if not yet, soon. It seems that things are starting to open up a bit, at least here in New Orleans. It will be great if we can all be patient enough to navigate this part of the pandemic successfully.
April 2 is Bandcamp day, so of course I have a couple of releases to bring to your attention. I am very happy that some new music that I made with Dan Oestreicher, Jesse Morrow, and Mikel Patrick Avery is officially released. You can get the music at https://breakfastfordinnerrecords.bandcamp.com/album/oma-h-a.
I also made a track for Stay in Shape, Vol. 3. It is a compilation of music to raise money to support repairs to the Sun ra House in Philadelphia. As Sun Ra said, “I am doing my part, I am making music.” You can get that and the other two volumes at https://bradfarberman.bandcamp.com.
I was interviewed by Emily Fransen for her podcast Welcome to My Nerd Brain. That episode will be out on Monday. You can get that at https://welcometomynerdbrain.com.
I also have a few public performances coming up:
Wednesday, April 21, 2021 from 7-9pm CDT: Unanimous Sources at The BroadSide (600 N. Broad Ave, New Orleans, LA) presented by Scatterjazz. This is an outdoor venue that requires proper pandemic protocols. Advance tickets are recommended and available from the venue’s website.
Tuesday, April 27, 2021 from 7-9pm CDT: Mike Dillon, Chris Alford, and Jeff Albert at the SidePorch (425 S. White St, New Orleans) presented by Scatterjazz. This is an outdoor venue that requires proper pandemic protocols.
Friday, April 30, 2021: Luther Kent & Trick Bag at Monkey Hill (6100 Magazine St, New Orleans) at 9:30pm
Thanks for reading and listening. Stay safe and I hope to see you at a gig.
