swing time

Turns out all I had to do was mention yesterday how sorely lacking we’ve been for snow this year.

What a gift, soft springtime flakes falling this morning!

Nice.

I got up early to get ready for a recording session with the Underscore Orkestra at the VPR performance studio. They’re six players strong from Portland, OR., taking a tour of the Northeast now with a couple of stops in Vermont (Radio Bean tonight; Langdon Street tomorrow night) before hitting Montreal near the end of this week.

This is where, if I were Pandora, I’d be making similar sounding recommendations for groups like Gogol Bordello, Balkan Beatbox, The Squirrel Nut Zippers, or maybe the Fishtank Ensemble. All good recommendations.

But if you have a chance this evening or tomorrow night, I recommend checking out their set and seeing (hearing) what creative new twists the Underscore brings to the genre.
