Experimental space improv duo 84001 joined me in the studio for a mind-bending improv showcase. In the interview, guitarist/keyboardist Tim Carey mentioned that his baby was due on July 12th, today. I’m happy to announce that Tim and his wife are the proud parents of a baby boy!
Tim and keyboardist/guitarist Jimmy Thorn discuss the local music scene, the City Skies Festival, the origins of the name 84001, and much more. The improv is soothing, fragile, ethereal, and fantastic. Enjoy.
