Four Walls And A Bed
Abel, Rawls & Hayes
The EP features 4 new songs plus a live recording of "I'ma Needin' To Tell You". The EP kicks into gear with the rocker "In Too Deep" and then gently glides into a beautiful jazz piece, "Our History". David Ragsdale's violin in this track is spell-binding! From here the listener is transported to the wide-open western expanse of "Good Morning Cortez". The fourth track on the CD is a short ambient, instrumental piece entitled "Raga Pony". The title was derived from the eastern influenced tonalities in David Ragsdale's violin performance and the infectious "gallop" of Calvin Kelley's performance on the cajon.
Recorded at Real 2 Reel Studios between Dec 2009 and February 2010.
