You know the drill. A little while ago, two fine young men, Kenny Eaton and Jordan Miller, approached us with an idea for a partnership: Bring bands into Kenny’s Mystery Ton Studios, ask them to record a song, sit them down for an interview, video everything, and release all of it to the masses. Manning the cameras, of course, would be Jordan, along with his Gypsy Cab crew, and we would call the thing “Frederick One Take.”
This is typically where we run down through all the other episodes, recapping each guest and providing a link … but that list is becoming too long to constantly mention. So, instead, we’d love to encourage you to take a look at the Frederick One Take tag on this very website, or to head over to our YouTube channel to have a look at all the other wonderful videos that have come out of this tiny project. Frederick has some awfully remarkable musical talent in and around its parameters, you know.
Anyway, this month, we have a treat that rivals all other treats: The Jeff Cosgrove Trio. Featuring Cosgrove on drums, this iteration of the trio also includes Mark Leisher on bass and Brad Linde on saxophone. In addition to their performance, they stopped by to talk about the current state of jazz music, its future, how they came together and why some of them may not approve of the name “Jeff Cosgrove Trio” (kidding!). We had a blast recording this one and if there’s one thing you YouTube all day, friends, we sincerely hope it involves these two videos.
Now, for more on Jeff, you can visit his website here. For more on Mystery Ton Studios, go visit Kenny’s website, which is radical. And for more on Gypsy Cab Productions, go visit Jordan’s website, and see how great he looks in a tie.
