new release from the paul abella trio

8 posts in this topic

So, it's been a while since I've posted here with any regularity, so I kinda feel like a douche even posting this, but there does seem to be a lot of interest in the Chicago jazz scene around these parts, so, I'm giving it a go.

Anyway, my group, the paul abella trio has just recorded it's latest CD. It's a mish mash of a disc that has a little bit of everything, from an attempt to recreate George Benson's 70's sound to odd-metered jazz-influenced pop tunes. In between are some interpretations of some of our favorite tunes from Nine Inch Nails, Metallica, The Grateful Dead, Led Zeppelin and Bob Dylan. So, because this stuff is not cheap, we're going the crowd funding route. If nothing else, click on the link to watch the fairly funny video... http://www.indiegogo.com/paulabellatrio

If you're wondering what we sound like, here are a few links...

we're down to the two week marker, and we're still $1100 shy of the bare minimum we need to get this thing pressed. I promise you'll like it.

Give Paul a chance. His first cd preceeds Muhal Richard Abrams in my collection database.
