David Ades And Friends Live At The Bangalow Bowling Club, Launching The Acclaimed New Album “a Glorious Uncertainty” On Thursday, May 17th AT 7.30 doors open at 7.00. $20.00
To All my Music Loving friends
My new album “A Glorious Uncertainty” was recorded on the 30th May 2011 in Brooklyn, New York. The musicians are Mark Helias Bass, Producer, Tony Malaby Tenor Saxophone, Gerald Cleaver Drums and myself on Alto Saxophone.
I decided to record the album in NY because I have had a long relationship with the city and also my Father lived there until his death in 2009 and my Sister and her family live there.
Mark, Tony and Gerald are among my favorite players in the world today. I was very lucky to not only have them all at home at the same time and available but also have them embrace the moment and give of themselves so generously to my music.
The album is dedicated to my Father, Joe Ades, the legendary street trader of New York who captured the imagination of an entire city with his huge character and amazing ability. If you want to find out more about him there is a fantastic 5-page article in a 2005 issue of Vanity Fair as well as many profiles and articles written in The New York Times, also, features on American story with Bob Dodson (all available online)
The album is available through Vitamin Records and I Tunes and will also be sold at gigs around the country. I have launched the album with a different band in each city. I have loved hearing how all my favourite Australian musicians approach the music differently. For the performance on the 17th of May at the Bangalow Bowling Club I will be joined by Cameron Undy on Bass from Sydney, David Goodman on drums also from Sydney and the great Zac Hurren ( Katie Noonans hubby) on Tenor saxophone
This is my first album under my own name for a good long while and I have put my heart and soul into it. I hope you enjoy it.
