Mark Rapp & Derek Lee Bronston's "The Song Project"- CD Release Show
FEATURING:
Mark Rapp, trumpet & didgeridoo
Derek Lee Bronston, guitar & vocals
Rene Hart, double bass
Greg Ritchie, drums
special guests, TBA

The Song Project, initially a digital collaboration between trumpeter Mark Rapp and guitarist/vocalist Derek Lee Bronston, became a fully realized concept with their first tour in the early Spring of 2010 which included venues in Geneva and New York City. Developing as an online recording experiment where Bronston recorded in Brooklyn and Rapp in Europe, the results exceeded all expectations, delivering organic tracks filled with nuance. The culmination of those efforts can be found here: http://thesongproject.net

While on tour in Switzerland in May of 2010, the duo recorded their debut CD, "Art of the Song, Vol.1". The recording is made up of original pieces from both members as well a mix of covers including: AC/DC's "All Night Long", an exploratory Radiohead tune and "Mad World" by Tears for Fears. Not your run-of-the-mill jazz group, The Song Project presents an engaging musical performance where each song is explored freely, melodically and with passion while adhering to the ideals of jazz - the exploration of song both written and improvised.

The recording, set for release by Paved Earth Music in the Fall 2010, will have limited physical printings for sale at live performances and will be released worldwide through iTunes. Apple's App. Store will sell the release in the form of an "Applum", developed by Paved Earth Music and theConspiracy,LLC. An "Applum" is an iPhone/iPad App combined with an album. The Application contains an extended digital album with the music, cover art gallery, text, web links, images, videos and more, all contained in one download. This is a complete multimedia experience. The cover art gallery is by renowned designer & photo-illustrator Sean Mosher-Smith who has done work for Lenny Kravitz, The Rolling Stones, Joss Stone, KT Tunstall, Courtney Love, Iggy Pop, Dave Mattews Band and many more.

Derek Lee Bronston, guitarist, vocalist and songwriter has been on the scene since the 90’s playing and recording both as a band leader and sideman, receiving consistent praise from the Jazz, Rock and Americana/Country scenes. He has enjoyed extensive airplay and critical acclaim as a leader with his Jazz CD Longing (featuring Tom Harrell), with rock bands The Hush and Mostley and more recently with his Americana/Country recording “Empty River”. Derek Lee has played as a sideman with Cecil Taylor, Billy Bang, The Great Shakes, Heather Greene, Cooley’s Hot Box and Branford Marsalis to name a few.

Mark Rapp, trumpeter and composer, has played sold out shows at Joe's Pub, Yoshi's (San Francisco) and such venues as the Blue Note (NY), JVC Newport Jazz Festival, Jazz Standard (NY), Dizzy's at Jazz Lincoln Center, JazzTime Festival (Croatia), Jazzland (Vienna) and more. Mark was named a "top emerging trumpeter" by Downbeat Magazine and was featured on a Travel Channel documentary. He has played with diverse artists from Branford Marsalis to Hootie and the Blowfish. This year he released "Braden-Rapp: The Strayhorn Project" featuring saxophone great Don Braden and GRAMMY-nominated pianist Gerald Clayton - a top 10 record on the Jazz Radio Jazz Charts for over 2-months reaching #4. His critically acclaimed debut record Token Tales released in early 2009 is still being played around the globe.
