I'm a little bit late with this one, but hey, it's only three weeks since the official release.
In August 2013, Carsie Blanton ran a Kickstarter campaign “Jazz Is For Everybody” and killed it. It was uber successful.
We had to wait for quite a while for the result but now it's here, with the title “Not Old, Not New”. It's not a swing dance album but there are a few tracks that work well for dancing.
A nice-to-have for every Jazz lover.
Not Old, Not New
Release date: June 24, 2014
All of my music is available for download, for any price you please. Why? Because music is not a commodity, and songs are not worth $0.99. I made this because I wanted you to hear it. The question is, what's it worth TO YOU?
“Not Old, Not New” is also available as CD and vinyl record.
Immediate download of 11-track album in your choice of high-quality MP3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.
