The new Brave New World album, "Spork," is now on sale. Adam is thrilled to be working with mixing wizard Jeff Jones, also known as the Jedi Master. Adam worked with Jeff a while back at RVI studios, and Jeff helped record and mix Adam's first solo album, "In A Loud Way." Jeff recently won a Grammy for his production work on Dr. John's new CD, "The City That Care Forgot."
The album, originally intended as a 25 minute EP, will now be a regular length CD. Adam says "we had enough strong material, so what the heck..." The recording approach and the material are very 'old school'; most of the songs were recorded live in the studio, that is, the whole band playing together at the same time, like back-in-the-day! The music is uncompromising, there are no attempts at a 'radio song', just loud, blazing, EPIC slabs of face-melting jazz-rock. Tracking was done at world famous Avatar Studios in New York City, and mixing is proceeding at Jeff Jones' World Alert Studios, also in New York.
Why "Spork"? Well, sporks don't fit easily into any common category. Neither does jazz-rock! ...And there you have it!!! A Special Preview Edition of the new CD will be available (hopefully) in time for our tour, sometime in mid-October. Make sure you don't miss out on this sure-to-be-a-collector's-item-maybe-sometime-pretty-far-down-the-road-in- the-future Special Preview Edition!!
