J3 Videos Available Online
One of my side projects, the group J3 has released two videos online. The group is comprised of Jason Schaeffer, on electric space guitar, Jake Gilchrist on turntables, beats and keyboards with me on bass. The music is entirely improvised with a strong trip hop feel to it. Jason has edited together two videos using songs from the J3 sessions, "Summer Vacation" and "Chemistry." I'm really happy with how these videos turned out. Enjoy!

The J3 videos also received some attention from national music reviewers as well! To read Frank Gutch's online review of the videos, Click Here.
