The Turn - second pressing is shipping

Hello everyone,

Some of you may remember that I launched a successful Kickstarter to create an LP version of my record "The Turn" (recorded by James Farber, mastered and cut by Doug Sax). Some Audiogon members supported that effort and I am grateful. I am very happy about the result and I've received very good feedback and reviews (Analog Planet and Stereophile.

The first pressing has sold out but the second pressing, pressed exactly the same way at QRP, but not numbered, is now available and shipping. If anyone is interested, you can order it here. Like the first one, it's limited to 500 copies. It's a double LP (4 sides), pressed on 150g vinyl. Cost is $25 + shipping ($5 shipping anywhere in the US).

DownBeat gave the record 4 1/2 stars and it was included in several "best of 2014" lists: Boston Globe, LA Times, Ottawa Citizen and Burning Ambulance.

Any questions, please let me know.

Thanks for your support!

This is a FANTASTIC album! I bought one of the first pressings and indeed it deserves all the accolades that is has received.

Highly recommended!
I also bought a 1st press set and concur 100% with Mofimadness. One of my best purchases of the year - and then some!

Very cool. Also, pretty reasonably priced. Will check it out.

No afiliation with Jerome. Just putting this out there because I enjoyed his music.

Dear friends,
You are receiving this message because you participated in the Kickstarter for pressing The Turn on vinyl. I have just put out a new record, Lean and I thought you might want to be informed.

Lean is a collective project with Simon Jermyn and Allison Miller. Simon, Allison and I have been playing together for three years and the album is a mix of our originals and some improvisations.

Jerome Sabbagh: tenor and soprano saxophones
Simon Jermyn: electric bass and effects
Allison Miller: drums, bike and effects

Lean was recorded at Bunker in New York in 96/24, mixed by Pete Rende and mastered by Nate Wood.

Lean is available as a CD and download on Bandcamp, where you can stream three songs. It is also available as a 96/24 hi resolution download on Acoustic Sounds.

I am really happy with this record and we are starting to get some reviews. The Irish Times described it as "fresh, fearless music", The Wire called it "strong", and Downbeat gave a nice review, as well as the New York City Jazz Record.

I hope you will consider listening to it!

I won’t be pressing vinyl for this record but I am starting to put together my next project, which I intend to record entirely analog and press to vinyl in 2017. I will keep you posted.

Thanks for your support!
