  Our new album is completely recorded already, and it sounds amazing. We had the privilege of working with Grammy-award winning violinist Evan Price. The recording process has turned out to be a more time intensive and expensive project than we had originally anticipated. Today, very few record companies will front the money to record a jazz album. We believe that Jazz, and the music of Django, is a piece of history worth preserving. As such, it has fallen on us to pay for this project ourselves, which has proven to have it's difficulties. If we meet our goal, further funds will go towards future recordings and touring expenses.

We would sincerely appreciate anything you can do to help.
