So here's the thing:
Last December, I played some trio gigs in Japan with Thomas Morgan and RJ Miller. Over the course of the tour we found a way of making music together that felt really good to me. On the last night, we played a show in Mito City and I recorded it on my phone. The quality of the audio certainly isn't the most hi-fi, but there's something about the vibe of Voice Memos that I've always liked, and after doing a bit of mastering work to boost the low frequencies, I think it doesn't sound too shabby.
Anyway, here it is. You can have it. Just enter your email address and you'll be sent a download link. If for some reason you feel compelled to contribute something, consider donating to a charity in Japan (or elsewhere in the world), or buying someone else's record with the money you didn't spend on this one. There's no high concept here; this recording is basically a bootleg of the three of us playing some tunes, a documentation of something that happened which I felt like sharing (imperfections and all). Hope you enjoy.
And stay tuned...there's more music on the horizon this year.
