Andrew Farmer Album Release — “Redacted Passages” — with Jazz Special Forces

February 28


Redemption Fails, Judgment Day alternative sentencing, clashing clothing, Love Crime scenes, Wall Street, suped up wagons and even a touch of cannibalism hack a wide range of spy funk to globally warmed styling in original compositions and consequential sound, thanks especially to Jazz Special Forces, a lucky-as-hell star chamber of Lansing area stage and session player favorites: Jim Alfredson on his mighty B3 Hammond, Andre Jones’ electric guitar arson, our Jazz Special Air Force — Jon Gewirtz (saxophones), Brad Fowler (trumpet & Fugelhorn), Shawn Bell (trombone + horns arranger) — then Vandalay’s Jake Greenwood commanding both piano and percussion forts, Hank Horton’s seismic Jaco-Pastorius-trying-to-be-Hank-Horton Bass quakes, and, singer/songwriter Andrew Farmer bringing the strings plus some lightning from his Ned Steinberger electric violin to complete the Album arsenal.

Recorded, mixed and mastered by the George Martin of ReoTown, Ryan Wert, at Elm Street Recording.

As a special treat, fans of guest vocalist Cindy McElroy will get to hear her sing as never before on “Tailored To Undress” and elsewhere on harmonies — and even Represent with some serious scat-attitude.

Album pre-orders will become available February 6 on ITunes (at http://itunes.apple.com/album/id1342328081?ls=1&app=itunes + have access to the complete Album digital booklet) and Apple Music (at http://itunes.apple.com/album/id/1342328081) both at a discount (+ instant Single Download of “Said Goodbye To Summer) before the 28th.
