The latest musical contribution from critically-acclaimed guitarist and improvisational composer, Teddy Presberg, is a musical exploration through 16 funky, psychedelic experimental jazz tracks!
Once again, Presberg delivers fresh, genre-bending music—pulsing with funk—through his signature honest, raw recordings. The album features a handful of songs that seemingly blend into one another—yet each covers a unique musical purpose: from busted home studio recordings with cameos from his dog, to dream sequences interspersed with live recordings at St. Louis’ infamous Delmar Lounge; from jazz takes captured in the dining room, to recordings of spring birds caroling from Presberg’s midwest backyard.
“There is no sound proofing of my house in my recording method,” states Presberg. “I’m very into listening to a track and hearing the natural reverb of the rafters, walls and glass. I also use the Jack Kerouac method of using first takes and writing songs on the fly.”
As part of an environmentally focused partnership with Three Pin Records, one percent of the album proceeds are donated to 1% For The Planet, that benefits the Organic Farming Research Foundation in Santa Cruz, California. Through additional financial contributions to The Climate Trust, the album is also a neutral greenhouse gas production. “It doesn’t matter what our profession is, we have a personal responsibility to reduce our environmental footprint,” says Presberg.
