In May of 2011, we set out on a recording tour beginning in Chattanooga, TN with the Shaking Ray Levis (Dennis Palmer, Bob Stagner, Ernie Paik, Evan Lipson),
Greensboro, NC with Andrew Weathers, Philadelphia, PA with Helena Espvall, New City, NY with Richard Lainhart, and finally New Paltz, NY with Bill Brovold. 
 


New friendships were forged and old friendships were strengthened.  We are fortunate to know and to have played with such talented, giving people.


What a fantastic road trip!  Brief memories...playing for two hours with the Shaking Rays crew, then sitting down to an amazing steak dinner courtesy of Ernie.
 
Listening back to the recordings at Andrew's place and hearing cars and motorcycles on the recordings.  It all works somehow.
 
Drinking wine in Helena's beautiful backyard before playing in her home filled with wonderful curiosities, then a home cooked meal at Kelly's. 

Frank chugging Gatorade and Emergen-C before heading into the Mutter Museum.

Driving into Richard's driveway, him standing on the roof to greet us, and playing in his pristine studio.

Landing on our feet in NYC, spending two days at the Bentley Hotel courtesy of Zain, speeding around Manhattan and Brooklyn in cabs, visiting fancy bars, then running into friends from Atlanta at Issue Project Room.

Driving to Bill's idyllic pad in New Paltz and him making us feel like old friends.

A mostly foggy drive straight back to Atlanta the final day.



Frank Schultz spent many hours in his studio, editing and mastering this collection which we are now proud to release.



Collaborations" is now available at Criminal Records in Atlanta, GA, Decatur CD in Decatur, GA and online through iTunes, CD Baby, Amazon, and emusic.
