House of Chadula 2017

In October I rehearsed a quintet for a live recording session in Boston. This material came out very well and I am happy to present LETS GET WEIRD BUT COMFORTABLE, a superbly recorded and mixed collection of material featuring myself with Jeb Bishop, trombone/Jorrit Dykstra, saxophone/Nate McBride, bass and Curt Newton, bass. An audience member described the band as “weird but comfortable” and this became the name of the combo, others that have heard this phrase are developing it into a life philosophy. The set includes music by Theloniius Monk, Misha Mengelberg, Steve Lacy, Duke Ellington, Doc Chad, Willie Nelson and The James Gang.
