Fund raising campaign to record, mix, master, press, release and promote the new Mike DiRubbo Quintet recording.
New York, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/28/2013 -- Today, in an age where media-created young lions are more interested in downloads than down beats, alto saxophonist/composer/bandleader/educator Mike DiRubbo is the real deal. Ever since he arrived in New York two decades ago, DiRubbo has reigned supreme as one of the most durable and dynamic musicians of his generation. That bold statement is augmented by the aural evidence of his work with the brightest jazz stars including Tony Reedus, Larry Willis, Eddie Henderson, Clarence “Gatemouth” Brown, Dwayne Burno, Peter Washington, Carl Allen, John Hicks and Cecil Payne, and as a solo artist, with seven critically-acclaimed CD’s as a leader. DiRubbo has worked in various New York clubs including Smalls, Smoke, 55 Bar, the Kitano, and has also performed in many national and international venues including the Litchfield Jazz Festival, Vizta Jazz in Rio de Janeiro, The Maze in Rio de Janeiro, the Clifford Brown Jazz Festival, the Greater Hartford Festival of Jazz, the JVC Jazz Festival in NYC and the Jazz, Blues and Videotape festival in Tel Aviv, Ferrara Jazz in Italy, and Ancona Jazz Festival.
Mike is using this crowdfunding campaign to fund the recording of his quintet’s new compositions for their much-anticipated 2nd release on Ksanti Records.
Here is the breakdown of what the funds will be used for
- Paying the musicians
- Recording costs - studio time, engineer, mixing & mastering
- Graphic design
- CD manufacturing
- Print publicity and radio promo
This campaign will receive all funds raised even if it does not reach its goal. Funding duration: October 03, 2013 - December 01, 2013 (11:59pm PT).
