ANDY SCHUMM MAKES A RECORD!

Cornetist Andy Schumm doesn’t do things the usual way — so, with the help of pianist Bryan Wright (the head of his own Rivermont Records), he has made his first record, something we’ve been waiting for . . .

a two-sided 10″ microgroove 78 — a limited edition of 500 copies.

Andy’s chosen two pieces of Twenties esoterica, DOWN IN GALLION (from John Williams’ Synco Jazzers) and THE SWING (really WASHINGTON AND LEE SWING).  Here’s more information about the disc, and a YouTube video that shows that both the performance and the sound are wonderful:

And if “limited edition” makes you think that this 78 will be out of your price range, it’s $16 plus shipping (complete with whimsically ornamented sleeve).
