I got to play with some old school heroes the other night: John Scofield, Nels Cline, Billy Martin, as well as Joe Russo, Erik Deutsch, Dave Harrington. All for a good cause -- auctioning of Jerry Garcia's guitar (sold at $1.6 million!) for Southern Poverty Law Center.
I'm playing with some of my favorite bands this year:
Friday: Bizingas (with Drye, Ches Smith, Hank Roberts, and Shane Endsley), then Ye Olde (with Halvorson, Garchik, Mendoza, and Sperrazza)
Saturday: Superette (Lightcap, Reiser, Hasselbring)
Just finished recording Superette's new album at Sear Sound last week - the rough tracks sounded amazing. Excited for this album to come out! Thanks to Chris Lightcap, Dan Reiser, and Curtis Hasslebring -- an incredible group of musicians.
I'm featured on several outstanding releases that are just coming out this fall...
- Red Baraat: Livewire (recorded live earlier this year in Seattle...FREE download)
- Jacob Garchik's Ye Olde (super-band of 3 guitars, trombone, and drums)
- Brian Drye's Bizingas (2nd album from an amazing composer and band - also produced and mixed by JG)
I'm honored to have been a part of such a spirited and visionary film - made by my brother - his first feature -17 years ago!!! Its finally streamable after too long in distribution limbo - check it out!
Julian Goldberger’s award-winning first feature Trans (film) (1998) makes its digital premiere #TODAY via the #SundanceInstitute #ArtistServices program!
DOWNLOAD IT NOW on iTunes, Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, and VUDU
Playing guitar with Red Baraat has been such a pleasure. The band is sounding HOT! Come check us out...
