ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
B I O

This original New York City band is comprised of :

* the poetry and singing of Jane LeCroy; completely exemplifying the alphabet at its best. Her powerful stage presence is as meaningful as it is wonderful.

*Tom Abbs is a force of nature playing the upright bass. He performs with Jazz greats such as Reggie Workman, Andrew Bemky and Arnie Lawrence. In addition to the supreme mastery he has over his instrument, he straps to it a didjeridoo, hangs firecrackers from the bridge and has percussion toys on his feet. He also plays tuba. . .

AND...other musicians, beatboxers and poets often join as special guests to twist up the evening with more magic for special sets.

Transmitting- Dark And Full Of Life
Super heroic on stage and Supersonic through your stereo. Makes you want to tighten up your vocabulary skills and learn how to play an instrument well. Love it.
