Album Remarks & Appraisals:
We recorded Small Constructions over the course of a few days in the Yamaha artist space in Manhattan, with some of our favorite instruments close at hand: a beautiful piano, a Fender Rhodes, three kinds of saxes, a bassoon and a melodica. It was a DIY affair - we used our own recording gear and though we 6 were very focused on the music at hand. The end result is a set of songs that expresses our mutual love of jazz, classical, pop and more.
