Live @ The Market Place Restaurant Asheville, NC 4/3/14 Set 1

I thought this first set sounded nice from The Market Place Restaurant
4/3/14 and I wanted to share because it has been a while since I have posted a live show and many people have requested I record a new one. These are all original tunes and remixes. There are no overdubs and no edits here, just raw live improvised and synchronized trumpet/keys, melodica, looping, effecting, chopping, and dubbing using ableton live. Enjoy! I'm there every Thursday night if you are in Asheville and would like to hear some unique live music.
