After you've gone

Thanks to the miracle of lapsing copyright, here is Yoon’s E String Band performing After You’ve Gone (Music and lyrics by Henry Creamer and Turner Layton (1918)). They only had an hour and a half to record a quick demo, so they just raced through a bunch of songs. Still, I think it’s got a nice energy.

Damn, but they’re good. Are they making a new record?

That particular band (The E String Band) hasn’t made any official recordings yet. The mp3 I put up was a demo to try to get gigs and to apply for a grant. It’s so expensive to make and produce a recording that I’m afraid it’ll have to wait.

Yoon is also doing a duo project now with a pianist. She just recorded an album of songs by Joe Raposo. That’s their second album, the first being this.

And she just released an album with the quintet 4inObjects, which is here.

All the projects are very different, as you can see by clicking on the samples on those pages. The E String Band does mainly covers of everything from Hank Williams to Cindi Lauper. The duo does a lot of original music and free improvisation, including some really, really odd stuff (e.g., atonal, free). And 4inObjects is sort of a mix of those two.

The recording quality is terrible, but I put up two other mp3s and wrote about them here. It’s such a pity that I can’t even post low-quality recordings of live stuff, but Yoon is terrified of getting in trouble for copyright infringement.
