About the Album

8 Out began in 2015 with a pre-chorus of outside intervals that builds into a chorus with bebop melody and an augmented, harmonic twist. The early composition was set aside until 2018. After an Independent Music Award nomination, pre-production continued from spring 2018 until mid-December. Jordan Perlson (drums) performs the indicated drum breaks freely, leading Cody McCorry (electric bass) and Brian Lawlor (piano / pad) into musical spontaneity. The playing is intentionally stripped down beginning at the guitar solo, and then builds like the pre-chorus. Michael Ghegan (saxophone) blows a visceral solo from the bridge, urged on by bass guitar with a devil-may-care attitude. Solos by Adam De Lucia (electric guitar) and Perlson add character to a stirring composition.

A modern classic production was achieved with the use of vintage Fender amplifiers, Acoustic Amplification, Ampeg Portaflex, and Vox AC30 with alnico speakers. Also, the Blumlein technique and vintage microphones were chosen for appropriate application and color at Lakehouse Recording Studios in Asbury Park, NJ. A Neve 8024, one of the few remaining in existence, colored the recording for a glued-together sound. Tim Pannella mastered 8 Out on tape with an Otari MTR-10 at Lakehouse for added warmth and character.

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
