About this project

Jeff Babko (piano/kayboards), Tim Lefebvre (acoustic and electric bass), Mark Guiliana (drums)
 
Recorded live at Sam First on April 28 and 29, 2022
 
Pianist/keyboardist Jeff Babko recorded two nights of musical explorations with long-time collaborators and "Clam City" bandmates, bassist Tim Lefebvre and drummer Mark Guiliana. Unpredictable magic erupts every time these three musicians converge for a “hang”, or in this event, a musical evening of discovery. These three GRAMMY-nominated artist's also comprise Guiliana’s “Beat Music L.A.” ensemble. Individually, their credits span from David Bowie’s “Blackstar” album and Donny McCaslin’s band, to TV appearances on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and motion picture soundtracks, including the recent #1 hit “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from Pixar's Encanto.
