About time we started getting some IJG videos posted on this thingamajig, n'est-ce pas? The above is from our CD release show at the Barnsdall Gallery Theater about a year ago. (Filmed by Matt Lichtenwalner.)

Here's another, recorded in Bakersfield (August tour, 2004) in the middle of our "tentet phase"; the alto soloist is Evan Francis, and the rest of the band is Damon Zick (bari), Matt Otto (tenor), Jason Mears (soprano), Shaunte Palmer (bone), Kris Tiner (trumpet), Phil Rodriguez (trumpet), Robert Jacobson (guitar), Harish Raghavan (bass), and Aaron McLendon (drums):

And another of the IJG quintet breakout group performing at Moody's (also August 2004):

These ain't too spectacular, I know. There is actually a lot of other (and better) footage of the group, but most of it is not in a postable format at the moment. However, as I said, it's about time -- so watch this space, godammit.

Dang, man, that "Introducing the Trumpets" has got to be the most brain-searingly catchy tune you've ever written. And I don't mean that in a good way. Of all the things to get stuck in my head for days on end after that gig, it had to be Jill singing "Phil Rodriguez, Phil Rod-ri-guezzz..."

And here we go again...

I know, I'm going to hell for that one.
