The Jazz Angle
In mid-2015 we produced an album of some of our 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 CDs is available now on iTunes or
