Monday, March 26, 2007 - Ard Them Icarus
Here's a cool little audio clip from Nino Batista, former DT bassist:

Ard Them Icarus (mp3)

Nino sez:
"I have spent the past week tweaking my newly purchased instrument modelers in Logic to create the quintessential 1986 Nintendo Entertainment System sound. To be more versatile, I also used MiniMoog and Mellotron modelers on top of it the video game stuff. So it's not 100% NES, but still old skool."
This clip has a couple "old skool" DT references in there, too. Good stuff, Nino!

Make sure to also check out his contributions on the 11 + 11 project, remixing material from members of King Crimson.

Saturday, March 17, 2007 - SxSW
We had a great show at the Continental Club (Gallery) in Austin this week. Righteous Buddha and McLemore Avenue put on fantastic shows. We ended the night with special guest, Ephraim Owens on trumpet. Pics below.


Sunday, March 11, 2007 - Praise for Cezanne
Check out what the latest issue of Keyboard had to say about Cezanne:

"Many successful bands have one album that's widely known as their first, but which isn't actually their earliest recording. Cezanne will be that album for the Drop Trio, a keyboard driven, groove-oriented fusion group out of Houston, TX. Recorded live at the venue for which it is named, Cezanne has asymmetric meters and airtight bass and keys hook ups. What stands out most, though, is that all of its tracks are motivically compelling. Keysman Ian Varley drives acoustic piano and synths without getting caught showing off even once. The music is centered and upbeat, with a sound recalls Page McConnell's Vida Blue, but with slightly less flower power, or perhaps a slightly more angular Jacob Fred Jazz Odyssey. Pick this up at the band's website, or buy a DRM-free download from Magnatune." - Carl Luma
