Jazzilla November :: Highlights with Fredo Ortiz :: 11/18 At the Spare Room

After a whole year of Jazzilla, we are super honored to be jamming with percussionist Fredo Ortiz. He has done legendary work with the Beastie Boys as well as played on some of our records. We will start the new Jazzilla year off with a bunch of highlights that work well with percussion... because after all, we have been building up our repertoire. FYI Parking at the Roosevelt Hotel isn't as tricky as one may think... simply valet your car and get your ticket validated by The Spare Room (it's around 5$).

Mattson 2 release new Single "Baby Blue" joined by Japanese Vocalists Chocolat & Akito

For the past seven years we have been communicating melodies, riffs, harmonies, loose thoughts, and other musical explorations with Tokyo based duo/couple Chocolat & Akito. They have worked with Cornelius, Haruomi "Harry" Hosono, Tortoise, and Sea and Cake. It's been a wonderful experience incorporating vocals into the fold... All of the instruments were tracked at Ruminator Audio by M2 Alumnus engineer Monte Vallier. The whole record is being mixed by John McCentire as we speak. The lyrics explore Japanese, English, and Scatting so even though you may not understand the lyrics, open your ears and enjoy the sounds as music... let the melodies take you away. We hope you enjoy Baby Blue! Listen Here! 

Words & Music by Chocolat & Akito, The Mattson 2 Track Recorded by Monte Vallier (Jet Black Crayon) Vocal Recorded by 上條雄次 Mixed & Mastered by 浦本雅史
