Your Cart is Empty

Jeff Babko / Tim Lefebvre / Mark Guiliana


Recorded using Sam First’s state-of-the-art analog to digital recording setup then mixed and mastered in-house. Vinyl LP is pressed by Gotta Groove Records (Cleveland, OH) onto two 180-gram vinyl LPs, and packaged in static-free audiophile rice paper sleeves. Vinyl packaging displays a full-bleed print of the cover photo taken by Sam First Records owner, Paul Solomon. Edition of 500, each copy displaying its own unique foil-stamped number.

Pianist/keyboardist Jeff Babko recorded two nights of musical explorations with long-time collaborators and “Clam City” bandmates, bassist Tim Lefebvre and drummer Mark Guiliana. Unpredictable magic erupts every time these three musicians converge for a “hang”, or in this event, a musical evening of discovery. These three GRAMMY-nominated artists also comprise Guiliana’s “Beat Music L.A.” ensemble. Individually, their credits span from David Bowie’s “Blackstar” album and Donny McCaslin’s band, to TV appearances on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” and motion picture soundtracks including the #1 hit “We Don’t Talk About Bruno” from Pixar’s Encanto.
