Cincy Groove: Your debut record came out about a year ago, how is the follow up coming along?

Ed Anderson: It’s funny you called when you did, I am in the middle of putting together artwork for the new record.  The record itself is finished and is coming out on October 27.  Now we are trying to decide the vibe and look of the album cover, etc…  The music itself is more Americana, a lot of fiddle and pedal steel guitar.  It also has a lower Alabama vibe, which is where I was living when I made it.  We make a trip down to Alabama each year.  We base ourselves in Orange Beach, Alabama and tour the southeastern states when it unbearably cold here in the north.   Read more

Going into 2015 Freek has a lot of things on the table. He just released his next album , “Everybody’s Feelin’ Real”, which is produced by Duane Lundy (My Morning Jacket’s Jim James/Ben Sollee) and includes P-Funk/Rubberband keyboardist Razor Sharp Johnson, horn man Skerik, and Trey Anastasio Band vocalist/trumpet Jennifer Hartswick . Also, he was a part of this year’s London Bass Guitar Show in the UK giving a master class and performing. Plus he will be doing extensive touring with his mainstay funk group, “Freekbass & The Bump Assembly”. (from freekbass.com)

Cincy Groove: How does your latest album compare to your previous releases? did you do anything differently? special guests?

Freekbass: very excited about this new album because of the way Producer Duane Lundy had us record it. We set up in a tight circle, with my full bass amp at the full volume I play at live, and recorded all of the bed tracks altogether. No overdubs on initial bed tracks. If someone made a mistake or didn’t like the way they played on the track, we started all over together. So what went to track was the same energy, feel, and vibe as you would have from a live performance. As well as drummers Chip Wilson, and Big Bamn who both play with me live, we had original Rubberband and P-Funk keyboardist Razor Sharp Johnson (who will be playing with us at Southgate tomorrow night) on most of the tracks. Also, Jennifer Hartswick from Trey Anastasio Band, and horn madman Skerik join in on many of the tracks. Read more

Jason Dennie grew up around acoustic music. The sound of acoustic guitar, mandolin, fiddle, and banjo were pretty common and familiar to his ears by the time he actually had an interest in playing anything himself. Guitar was what he chose and while early influences could be named; Tony Rice, Doc Watson, Stephen Stills and Neil Young, the music that would come from him would always be a unique combination of everything he’d heard.

His main references were from the Bluegrass world, after all, that’s what most of his family played. He had a direct link to the heart of Bluegrass with his Grandfather being good friends with the man who had ‘started it all’ Mr. Bill Monroe, and an Uncle who filled the role of banjo player for Monroe’s Bluegrass Boys in the early 70′s. Jason can remember time spent at many Bluegrass festivals as a child and the sounds of Tony Rice’s guitar and distinct voice filling the house…to this day Tony Rice is still his father’s favorite guitarist.
