Track #5, “Target Practice”, In Black and White

Happy New Year! The silly season’s out of the way for another year, the headaches have subsided, and here at Catch and Release HQ we’ve kicked out the squatters and cleaned the stains off the ceiling. And we’re back on the blog!

Tune #5, entitled “Target Practice”, comes out this Thursday! The release date took me by surprise this time, so we’re going to have to cram two weeks worth of blog into about three days. Starting with photos!

We recorded the new one at Smalls last week. Our wonderful and talented photographer, Una, came down with an unexpected bug and had to pull out at the last minute. But as luck would have it, Dan’s younger brother was in town, and happens to be quite the talented shutterbug! Dan called him from the drum stool, and he dropped everything and hied it down to the session. And check out these moody shots! Thanks Avshalom- you saved our bacon!

The Third Degree (feat. Peter Bernstein)

Track #3 is up on the grid! Entitled “The Third Degree”, it features the sterling talents of not only Jeremy Manasia (p), Dave Baron (b), and Dan Aran (d); but also our special guest- guitarist Peter Bernstein!

The groove is sort of a Blue Note-style Bossa Nova- I think you’ll find it groovy and swinging. Have a listen, and if you dig it, buy it- it’ll only cost you one dollar! Enjoy!

As always, thanks Una Stade for the great pictures!

Recording Session #2 in pictures!

Tune #2 is done and dusted! I wish recording sessions could all be this easy- a comfortable, relaxed setting, with cats who are not only the most happening, but extremely easy to work with. Thanks again go to Una for some great photos, and there are videos on the way! Next up is mixing, then the tune will be ready for you September 2nd!
