The name by which the world knows them

Mythic Birds (an improvising group with fellow bass clarinetists Keefe Jackson and Jason Stein and electronicist Brian Labycz) has released our debut recording on Peira, The name by which the world knows them. It's available in CD or digital formats.

We'll be celebrating with a record release show at the Hideout on Wednesday, May 23 at 10pm.  The evening will open with a duo set by cellists Fred Lonberg-Holm and Tomeka Reid.  Peter Margasak was kind enough to review the CD as a preview for the show for the Chicago Reader:
