These songs were written over a period of 3 years while i lived in Brooklyn and Milwaukee and are a series of dedications to various people and experiences.
The band was finally assembled when I moved back to Milwaukee in 2013. Chris, Jay, and John are some of the midwest's most fearless improvisors and musicians and they make up the core of Bell Dance Songs.
The album was recorded live in my friend Sean Behling's basement studio in Racine. I wanted to capture the sound of everyone being together in one room for this project. It boarders on the intimacy of the live "jazz" concert experience and rawness that only improvising can offer.
I sincerely hope you enjoy Bell Dance Songs.
