TT2_OAO-Square-300x300This just in from Alex Vittum, who grew up in Tamworth and is out in the world PLAYING MUSIC! Congratulations, Alex.

Dear Friends,
I’m happy to announce the release of On and On, the first album by Ton Trio II. The trio is Aram Shelton (alto sax, composition), Alex Vittum (drums), and Scott Brown (bass). We recorded On and On at Tiny Telephone Studios in San Francisco. As we were planning the session, we thought of making it a mono recording, thinking that the simplicity of the the trio's instrumentation could be reflected well in that recording format. Our engineer, Ian Pellici, used only 5 mics: one each for alto, bass, snare, kick and overhead. Though the final mixes have a touch of stereo spacing, it's fully mono compatible, so sum it up!Here's a track from the album and you can check out more at SingleSpeed Music. We're having an album release show this Saturday night, February 1st, at Duende in Oakland. We'll be sharing the bill with the Cory Wright Outfit, who are celebrating their new album "Apples + Oranges". You can buy tickets here, and join the social media event here.

Thanks so much, and hope to see you all soon!
