Majel Connery Live from Berkeley

Featuring the music of Majel Connery
Duration: 17:30

The songs on this set straddle different eras of composition for me. "This Kind of Love" and "Rebeam Me" come out of my 2019 album, Anything Chartreuse, featuring vocoder ballads with lyrics by Brad Balliett. These songs are floaty and atmospheric, and a bit melancholy. "He Had Had Gone" and "I Was Recognizing" are part of a later collaboration with poet Jeff Dolven, whose writing has often served as a muse to me. With these songs, I was beginning to write for drums and taking a more upbeat approach. "Euphoria," my most recent song, was born during quarantine, and helped me find a place of positivity during rough times. "Euphoria" also features buchla tracks (the buchla is a very, very early synthesizer) by my friend James Fowler. Finally, "The Umbrella Man" is a cover of a tune my grandma used to sing to me; it was first written in 1924.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
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.
