This is both our first performance, and recording. A maiden voyage of sorts. I was offered a set at Brooklyn’s Scholes Street Studio, and put this quartet together on short notice. Having heard Santiago, Colin, and Shawn many times (in various ensembles) at the “Bushwick Series”, and having performed with each separately in duet situations, I knew it would be a smokin’ set with these cats pushing the music.. But WOW!

This rough and tumble outing by comrades Gauci, Tammen, and Carlstedt comes about as a result of Brooklyn’s musical cauldron known as the “Bushwick Series”. Three improvising musicians, each performing with different bands on the same night, digging each other’s music..”I sure could use some of THAT weirdness up in my stuff..”. And so it begins, a match made in Bushwick. Buckle up!

Drummer Vijay Anderson, currently living/performing in Brooklyn, but hailing from California, leads this trio recording featuring clarinetist Ben Goldberg and bassist Adam Lane. Having worked separately with Goldberg and Lane (on the West Coast) since the early 2000’s, the three came together for this recording in NYC summer 2019. Three improvisational masters, traversing two coasts and decades, culminating in this extraordinary work of art!

Recorded just weeks before the Covid-19 pandemic shut down New York City and the Bushwick Public House, this album represents the culmination of three years of weekly performances by the 8pm Bushwick Series “house band”, and the end of an era. So this recording is both a farewell, a celebration of what was… and a call to action. We’ll see you all on the other side! – Stephen Gauci
