Jewels and Binoculars on tour

Tuesday, April 8th, 2008

Last summer I had the privilege of recording with a phenomenal bassist, Lindsey Horner. (The tracks will appear on my CD tentatively titled The Ones that Look the Weirdest Taste the Best, produced by Tim Carbone; I hope to get it out in time for the summer festivals).

Lindsey gave me a copy of a CD, Ships With Tattooed Sails, by his trio Jewels and Binoculars. It’s a collection of jazz interpretations of Bob Dylan songs. The band is joined on some tracks (including a fantastic “Blind Willie McTell) by guitarist Bill Frisell.

I just got word that Jewels and Binoculars will be touring this spring:

Jewels and Binoculars/ Lindsey Horner, Michael Vatcher, Michael Moore play music of Bob Dylan.

Ships With Tattooed Sails with special guest Bill Frisell. (On Village Voice “best of 2007” list)

“Jewels and Binoculars stands as a testimonial to the timelessness of Dylan’s music, to the versatility of jazz, and to the foresight and the talent of these three musicians who brought them together.” — Brendan Garland, Metro Santa Cruz (California)
