Vol. 1 - Oysters Ice Cream Lemonade, featuring vocals by Suzzy Roche, Ana Egge, Rachelle Garniez, and Gabriel Kahane. The new album has 6 originals, 2 covers (Carole King and Van Morrison), and tributes to Jaco Pastorius and go-go superstar Chuck Brown. The ensemble of 17 musicians includes Rayna Gellert, Chaim Tannenbaum, Erik Friedlander, Steve Elson, and Astral Weeks guitarist Jay Berliner.
