The Jazz Angle

In mid-2015 we produced an album of some of our then-favorite jazz standards – all written between 1928 and 1993.

Luke Clebsch was our bass player at that time, and we recorded guest appearances by our dear friends

Slyde Hyde, Andrea Lindborg and Joey Bradley.

Richard played producer, and we recorded and mixed

the project with Charles Brotman at Lava Tracks Studios

in Waimea during April, May and June of 2015.

The album is available now at

as well as other music Richard has produced.


Jesse, Richard and Brian were part of another, earlier "band" –

called the Slippersons – and we released a new album of jazz originals in 2016,

which was nominated for a 2017 Na Hoku Hanohano Award in Hawaii,

for Jazz Album of the Year! Click on the cover below to learn more.

Mahalo nui to everyone who made that possible!

ALSO – We recorded quite a few of our Friday night performances,

and if you're interested you can hear a few them with no adjustments.

In May of 2018 our "big band" released a live album of mostly originals,

recorded in a Seattle sound recording studio set in a beautiful church building…

We have a new Red Water Trio album, entitled Synesthesia!

The album was released on August 19th – in cyberspace!

You can listen anytime if you like or

you can get your own (digital) copy for ONLY $7!

Thanks for encouraging us!

Mahalo for supporting independent and live music.


We had the opportunity to create the theme music for a superb public radio program

on PRX, called Truth, Politics & Power,

with Neal Conan (RIP), previously host of

"Talk of the Nation" on NPR

(among other things).
