Suffet Steve Suffet: Live Performances CD (9) Steve Suffet: Live Performances CD 31 Jul 10


You read about it first on Mudcat!

My newest CD, Live Performances, is about to go into production. I have the master in hand, or more accurately, I have the master in front of my on my computer table, and I will deliver it to Oasis CD Manufacturing this coming week. No more plastic jewel cases for me! This time I'm ordering their eco-friendly Green Forest Wallets. My one and only step backwards is that the CDs will be shrink wrapped.

Live Performances consists of 15 tracks recorded at various venues in three countries -- the USA, Israel, and the UK -- over the past five years. Some of these recordings were the house mixes taken from the sound board, some were the audio tracks of video recordings, and one was a bootleg recording made by someone in the audience without my prior knowledge. No one intended to release any of these recordings on a CD. Nevertheless, sound engineer Ray Korona worked his usual magic and turned whatever raw material he was given into a very presentable product. It really sounds great.

My good friend good friend Anne Price sings with me on six tracks. Anne is an established artist in her own right, and I am both honored and delighted whenever we get the chance to perform together. Three other tracks were recorded at the Woody Guthrie Birthday Bash, a round robin songfest held in New York City every July. In each instance, many of the other musicians on the program can be heard providing spontaneous accompaniment.

The official release will be Saturday ninght, November 20, 2010, at the Peoples' Voice Cafe in New York City. However, I suspect Live Performances will be available as early as September. Please follow this thread for periodic updates.

Thank you.
