Info for Family Dinner, Vol. 2 (Deluxe)

The Family Dinner concept came out of our desire as a band to work with vocalist/composers whom we greatly admire. It began as an after-hours concert series on Friday nights in New York City. After about a year of performances with a myriad of artists, we recorded the first Family Dinner album with eight guests in Roanoke, Virginia, at the Jefferson Center for the Performing Arts. Since its release, Volume One has raised tens of thousands of dollars for the Music Lab at Jefferson Center, which provides music education and resources to youth in the Roanoke community.

In Volume Two, we changed the setting to New Orleans, Louisiana - in the thick of Mardi Gras - in order to support The Roots of Music Foundation, which empowers the youth of the city through music education, academic support, and mentorship while preserving and promoting the unique cultural and musical heritage of jazz’s birthplace. We also changed the format of our collaborations by not only inviting guest vocalists, but guest instrumentalists as well.

The idea was to create unlikely but natural pairings between the vocalists and instrumentalists: Appalachian singer Becca Stevens with members of the Swedish trad(ish) band Väsen. Afro-Peruvian torch-bearer Susana Baca with 7-string bassist/guitarist/groove machine (and citizen of the world) Charlie Hunter. British wunderkind Jacob Collier with New Orleans sousaphonist Big Ed Lee of the Soul Rebels Brass Band. Malian legend Salif Keïta, the “golden voice of Africa,” with Brazilians Carlos Malta and Bernardo Aguiar on flute and pandeiro, respectively. LA quirk-electro-pop duo Knower with woodwind virtuoso Jeff Coffin of Béla Fleck, Mutet, and Dave Matthews Band fame. Laura Mvula from the UK and Michelle Willis from its little/bigger sister, Canada, on pump organ and vocals. Finally, David Crosby and Chris Turner pulling from the deep instrumentalist pool to fill out and shape their songs. …
