Just got copies of On Foot:Brooklyn in the mail today from Craig Shepard. I’m playing clarinet on the first track “Sheepshead Bay, May 20, 2012”. Our parts are over the top of a field recording of Downtown Brooklyn, which is funny, considering we recorded it on top of a mountain out here in Utah, trying to get our notes in around the sounds of melting snow, rain on the roof and really excited birds.
The photo above is of the silent walk from Greenpoint to Red Hook that I took with Craig Shepard and friends. It was also a cold and rainy day and when we arrived in Red Hook, Christian Kobi, Craig and I played a beautiful trio.
I’ve been happy to be a part of this whole project, the music and the experience have been lovely. I’m glad Craig took the time to make these recordings.
