Sounds very nice from the 30 second preview clips. :thumbup:

Is there an mp3 download or any other way to buy this album without joining the corporate streaming "services" ?

Really nice! Are the original tunes written by you? Can you talk a little about the recording/production process? If I’m not mistaken, you received that Manabu ride recently. Recorded, mastered, and released since then?

Original tunes by Bill Graham,
Other than track 2 which is my
Composition, and track 3 which was a spontaneous improvisation.

Recorded in Athens GA over 1.5 days. Minor editing. Marlon patton (a great drummer) was the engineer. Drums isolated in a small but very tall room. Piano and bass in the big room. Mixed by legendary ECM engineer James Farber at Seat Sound NYC. Mastered by Mark Wilder at battery studios. Original artwork by our own Chad Anderson.

We didn’t see each other for 2 years until the studio. Track 6 (borders) is actually the first take we tried and the first notes we played together since before the pandemic.

Thanks for listening!!!

I had perfect sight lines to see both of them, so it was great. No problem at all.

Legendary James Farber indeed! He’s got the Midas Touch for jazz mixing IMO. I noticed the engineer used the same overhead setup that I often see at Farber sessions. Really great sounds and music. Nice to know Chad provided the artwork, too.

Just curious. Is that the same Canopus kit you had for sale a few years ago?
