A couple of years ago my friend Peter Lamb of Peter Lamb and the Wolves invited me and Lucian Cobb to contribute a track to a bootleg album, featuring many local North Carolina musicians collaborating with his band, to be released as a reward for his second album’s Kickstarter. Fast forward to this year and Peter Lamb decided that the album was too good to be kept a secret and has released the bootleg as a bona fide album, Carolina Tiger Milk. Lucian did the arrangement and trombone performance on the track “I’m Evil” and yours truly provided the vocals for this Una Mae Carlisle cover. You can pick up a copy of the album on iTunes or wherever the Wolves are performing.
Due to a typo naming the band “Atomic Heaters,” recognition was delayed, but we’re excited to announce that they discovered the mistake and the Atomic Rhythm All-Stars was a finalist for the Best Jazz Group in the Triangle in the Independent Weekly’s Best of the Triangle 2011! The title of Best Jazz Group went to Atomic’s saxophone player’s band, Peter Lamb and the Wolves, so there are winners all around! Thanks to everyone who voted in the reader’s choice poll for both of these groups without being prompted or choosing from a list!
