about

This album was recorded in one six-hour session on September 29, 2006. We set up in the main room at Word of Mouth in Algiers Point, no rehearsal, and hit it! Other than a couple of brief discussions about how to end (and sometimes not even that) my only directions were to play exactly what you want. I chose this group to make this record because I LOVE them and they just happen to be some of the greatest musicians I know. Jason Mingledorff is one of the most soulful and skilled cats I’ve ever met. When Jason’s on the gig you know he’s gonna make everyone around him sound better. Brian Coogan is an absolute magician. His ability to take my simple little tunes and re-harmonize them on the fly and create stunning soundscapes will never cease to blow my mind. Simon Lott is so much more than a drummer. His love of music and life comes through in every note he plays. He also has one of the greatest laughs I’ve heard in my life. And Tim Green… Anyone that ever got to experience the great joy of being around Tim can attest to the fact the he’s probably the kindest person to ever walk the earth. I think about Tim a lot since his passing. He was one of those people that made you want to be better. And what a sound!

I would also like to acknowledge Tim Stambaugh, Tracey Freeman, and Chris Munson. They are the unsung members of the band. This record would not be what it is without their contributions. Love you cats!

I hope you will experience a little bit of the joy we had making this record.

MJ

Breakfast for Dinner Records New Orleans, Louisiana

Breakfast for Dinner Records is a label focused on new music from New Orleans. New Orleans is a city known for its music, and that music is much more multi-faceted than most realize. B4D Records releases some of that music that falls outside of the classic idea of New Orleans music. Like having pancakes and bacon for dinner, this music may be a bit out of the mainstream, but it sure is good. ... more
