I’ve laid a new egg in my cozy nest of Spoot Music, in collaboration with Public Eyesore Records!
SCRAMBLED! is the second recording by OU (‘egg’ in Sardinian dialect), my beloved and lively Sardinian/Italian world music sextet. It comes out on Spoot Music on 30 May, 2015!
This stunningly beautiful collection of new compositions by trumpetist/ukeleleist Ersilia Prosperi is sung in Italian, Sardinian, Spanish, Portuguese, French, English and Pygmy, and features a guest brass band and chorus on one of the pieces. SCRAMBLED! blurs the boundaries between jazz, world music, irony, ferocity and tenderness.
Please join us at the CD Release Party at Solo Bar in Seattle on Saturday 30 May, 8-10pm. You can hear the new tracks, watch videos, enjoy a slide show, and even join in on a SKYPE conversation with our friends in Rome!
CD Baby will soon be distributing the physical discs!
Meanwhile, I’m playing lots of music with Ama Trio; collaborating with YESOD to create a sound score for The Cabiri aerial/gymnast company; and I just started a new duo with drummer Tarik Abouzied. And on the horizon: visionary choreographer Pat Graney has commissioned me once again, this time to compose the sound score for her new dance piece & installation Girl Gods, which premieres at On The Boards from 1-4 October.
Stay tuned for more!
