about

Recorded in 2009 at The Pound. Midnight to dawn, around one cheap Chinese microphone.

The chance recording that started everything. A few musicians collided one night, unfashionably south of the river, at the Krakow cellar-style bar Borscht, Vodka and Tears. Martini and friends were hanging after a gig, Leili Man Der, a visiting Swede, was hurting after a cold reception from her long-distance, banjo-playing sweetheart.

They named her ‘Bill’, and the newly minted crew headed round the corner to Jules and Darcy’s place - The Pound - a party house/crash pad/urban commune for Melbourne’s jazz fraternity. They jammed. Songs were written on the fly, snatched from the air, a lyric partnering unexpectedly with a phrase. One of those magic, stupid, brilliant, ephemeral nights, where something lovely happens between consenting adults, and dissipates at daybreak. Except this time someone pressed ‘record’.

This spontaneous album, of warm, poetic, bluesy jazz, is a document of a night. It is an excellent companion; easy to have around, a good sense of humour, and real.
