Honkin’ on KEXP

I recently played saxophone on a session for Sonarchy Radio as the leader of Analog Honking Device. It was aired on KEXP 90.3 FM and is now available as a Sonarchy Radio Podcast.

Sonarchy Radio: Analog Honking Device
Produced by Doug Haire at Jack Straw Studio, Seattle, WA
Cynthia Mullis (tenor sax), Chad McCullough (trumpet)
Steve Kim (electric bass), Chris Symer (acoustic bass), Chris Icasiano (drums)

This session was recorded in Seattle on March 16, 2013 and was more condensed than previous live concerts. The biggest challenge was keeping things moving for the sake of a radio recording — we performed 7 tunes in the hour. For this session I invited Chad McCullough to join in on trumpet and we had some freakish mind-meld moments. The shifting roles between Steve Kim on electric bass and Chris Symer on acoustic bass was intriguing, as was the energy, groove and texture contributed by Chris Icasiano. The melodic interaction with Chad was a blast! I love this kind of playing: kind of free, kind of inside…with a lot of interplay between the musicians.

Sonarchy Radio is recorded live in the studios at Jack Straw Productions, Seattle WA. Doug Haire produces and engineers these live shows. This hour long broadcast features new music and sound art made in the Pacific Northwest. Doug does a great job of recording these sessions — I’ve recorded with him many times at Jackstraw and the experience is always good. I’m really happy with the result of this session and I plan to spend some time mixing it and releasing it when I get a chance.

The session was aired on KEXP 90.3 FM early on Monday, July 29, and is now available in the archived Sonarchy Radio Podcasts. I’m honored to be included in this line-up of musical creativity from the Pacific Northwest.
