New CD Release! “NOODLINGS”

We a very excited to announce the official release of our newest recording project, “Noodlings,” featuring Dominic Waddles on saxophone, his father Alvin on piano, Noah Mallett on xylophone and his father Ed on tuba. The project is a collection of ragtime and jazz compositions from the 1920’s by Joe and George Hamilton Green, Teddy Brown and Rudy Wiedoft. Many thanks to recording genius Sergei Kvitko and the Blue Griffin Record label for helping to make this project a reality.

I think we had as much fun with the photo sessions as we did with the recording work! Not only is Sergei a recording genius, but a darn good photographer, as well! So much fun to be at the historic Potter House in Lansing, Michigan – many thanks to Jim McClurken and Sergei for giving us the run of the place. Thanks to Ted O’Dell, for bringing his 1923 Model T Touring Ford – and for giving Dominic an impromptu driving lesson on the front lawn ! And thanks also to Rosie the wonder dog for being a willing participant in our photo shoot!
