Product Notes

Liner Notes (partial): A story about Pablo Picasso goes something like this: while still in the days of his relatively early fame-before he had become a completely unapproachable icon-Picasso was sitting in a sidewalk café when a woman asked if he could sketch her picture, which he did, in a few sweeping lines, and she was very pleased. When she asked him could she give him anything for it, he named a fairly steep price, and somewhat taken aback, the woman protested that it had only taken him a few seconds; Picasso smiled and pointed out that yes, she was right, but that it had also taken him his whole life to be able to render a sketch like that in only a few seconds. I was reminded of that story when I was invited out to Brooklyn to check out these sessions on the 22nd and 25th of June, 2012. Although this album took only two days to record, and was recorded essentially live with no previous rehearsal dates, the songs-8 of 11 of which are Kevin's originals-are performed with a fluid and organic authority. The singing here is what Kevin sang with the band-he did no scratch vocals, as in keeping with their live recording concept. This album is what happens when you bring together very fine musicians to record very fine songs. TCleary.
