Recordings of 2013

It’s truly hard to believe the amount of music that comes out each year. I’ve been trying my best to resist the urge to channel surf through everything; many of my favorite records have a subtle quality that demands the listener’s undivided attention in order to be discovered. So I say to you and to myself, don’t forget the value of stopping everything else in your life, closing your eyes, and listening to an album all the way through. It’s a radical thing to do these days, but it still feels as good as ever.

Although I didn’t release anything as a leader this year, I was featured on quite a few 2013 releases. Here’s the list. Enjoy!

Kendrick Scott Oracle – “Conviction”
Darcy James Argue’s Secret Society – “Brooklyn Babylon”
