about

This was, it may or may not be clear, the first time we'd ever met. Let alone played together. The plan, pre-soundcheck, was 2 solo sets and a jam. Post-soundcheck we had other ideas. Just play, see just what this remarkable combination of sounds could do... Here's what it did.

Massive thanks to Jimmy for hosting, and the wonderful encouraging audience who cheered us on our way...

Steve Lawson - bass, loops, general amazement at what Daniel is capable of.
Daniel Berkman - gravikord, handsonic, a tiny synth, pedals, greatness.

about

Steve Lawson UK

The UK's most celebrated solo bassist, here with lots of looped/layered solo albums, & collaborations, most notably with genius singer Lobelia. Dig in deep, there's a lot to discover.

Pretty much all the music here is 'Pay What You Think It's Worth', so listen as much as you like, & do what it says on the tin...

As the website strap-line goes, it's the soundtrack to the day you wish you'd had.
