    The hilarious and legendary Todd Glass came over to play (virtually) this month! We talked about how his musical tastes developed, the performers he loves to watch for their showmanship, how he discovers new bands, and his relatively new-found love of ska. We also played a musical improv guessing game and premiered the swing-ska-James-Brown-inspired piece we wrote for Todd to use at his future live shows!

    Alize Francheska

    Virtuosic and versatile opera singer Alize Francheska collaborated with us remotely for this episode! We had a great chat about her musical upbringing, influences, and the highlights of her career. We also created a beautiful and eclectic set of pieces together. Instead of improvising, we devised a round robin game and created our tracks one layer at a time.


    Huge thanks to Alize and all the work she put into this!

Great listen!

Loyal fan of the show for a long time now. The conversations are casual and compelling, and the improvisations are eclectic but consistently excellent. Dave’s laugh is worth the click by itself; check ‘em out!
