"The Island of Three Shreeves collects solo, duo, trio and ensemble performances from this year . While most of the material comes from a recent barnstorm through the midwest, including studio sessions with ace engineer Pink Bob (of Neil Innes fame), there are also fascinating performances involving a Belgian ensemble consisting entirely of musically inclined civil servants.
The CD is primarily Doc Chad originals with an ensemble cover of the Dueling Banjos theme thrown in for yucks. New songs include the incredible Bird Song" as well as "Pod", a vision for the future as well as a sad comment on today.
During the recent tour I revived some of my earliest jazz tunes first featured on the Volume One and Two solo albums, thus the CD title as there are three different versions of "The Shreeve" as well as new takes on "Marcella Bienvenue, "Amber, Misty I Know You're Misty" and the fabulous "Shreeve's Heaven"."
Solo tracks: 1, 9 on the radio in St. Louis; 4, 6, 11 live in Chicago; 5, 10 live in Cleveland; 8, 13, 14 on the radio in Greensboro. Track 3 live in Austin. Track 2 studio track from Lexington, IL. Tracks 7, 12 live in Brussells.
