The trio has been blessed this summer with an unusual plethora of playing opportunities. One of the side effects of that is we are sounding pretty kick-ass as of late, which is a good thing as we plan our debut recording next month. All the new material is starting to click and I think we’re starting to enter into a new chapter of ensemble playing that has come a long way since our jam session house band days. We’re back at Cafe Metropol this Friday for what is probably our last public performance until the Asian American Music Festival in October. If you haven’t seen us yet this is as good a time as any to check it out.
