Coinciding with the release of the new Jazz Lunch CD “Housewarming,” the record has been made available for sale on cdbaby. I hope you choose to support our efforts to bring you the highest quality homemade music. Here is a brief history of the CD:
Housewarming was recorded over the first weekend in June here in my living room. Jon Lipscomb mixed the live performance to two tracks and the album is presented as is, with only one edit on the entire record. It was then mastered by the elite Paul Wickliffe of Skyline productions in New Jersey. At this point (late summer) the audio was 100% complete and published online.
Next a team of artists, designers, and photographers went to work on the art. The end result is a handmade outer sleeve, containing one of two randomly assorted insert sleeve designs. The disc itself is stamped with the title and the record label, Reoccurring Dreams Records, a local independent label.
