Michael Evan’s Swirling Lotus Blossom Bandits Band (demo)
Featuring: Michael Attias : alto saxophone, Michael Evans: drums, Evan Gallagher: keyboard, Jeff Hudgins: alto saxophone and Adam Lane: upright bass (in the group, but not featured on this recording: Peter Zummo: trombone)
This particular track is our version of Sun Ra’s tune. This is a favorite of mine when the Bandits play live, because it really has the ability to morph into other harmonic, melodic and rhythmic directions that embrace unpredictability. Recorded in the basement of my home, spring of 2003 and was one of six tracks made for demo purposes.
