Les Yper Sound release party in the basement
Back to the place where it all began.....
Says Jas Walton, "If our songs are omelettes, The Basement is where we cracked every single egg. It's been holy ground in my mind for going on seven years, since first meeting and working with Miles Arntzen back in the NYU days."
On November 11, join us for this intimate occasion in the West Village - a free listening dance party, live performance, and release celebration in the spot where much of "Explorations in Drums & Sax" was conceived and recorded.
At 9:00pm sharp we will drop the needle on the Les Yper Sound LP for a listening session and boogie to all 14 tracks (with some surprise live song re-creates). As the night continues, Miles & Jas will perform special duo improv instrumentals on drums & sax, weaving between different songs.
Musique concrete will usher in the after-hours downstairs hang, and you'll be able to pick up a copy of Figure & Ground's sophomore release " Explorations in Drums & Sax" on vinyl fthe first time, an album of intergalactic instrumentals by New York Afrobeat players Miles & Jas collaborating with Money Mark & Sinkane.
