Ideal Bread Project on Kickstarter
If you love the music of Steve Lacy, then you need to know about Ideal Bread, a quartet that offers their own interpretations of Lacy's compositions. The group is composed of Josh Sinton on baritone sax, Kirk Knuffke on trumpet, Adam Hopkins on bass and none other than Tomas Fujiwara on drums. They've released two CDs so far: 2008's The Ideal Bread (KMB-Jazz) and 2010's Transmit (Cuneiform Records). Now they've got an ambitious new project up for funding on Kickstarter: "Recompose and reimagine" all 26 compositions on Lacy's 3-CD box set Scratching the Seventies. They're about a quarter of the way to the goal of $8,000, and they have until August 23 to make it happen. Take a look at the project description on Kickstarter and give till it hurts!
Update: The group more than met their goal, raising a total of $8,600 by the deadline. Congratulations!
