New haps!

Hi all,

I know it's been a minute, but we've been working on some really exciting things, including new (and more regular!) blog postings, new recordings from myself and fellow conspirators, and a new record label!!

I just started a Twitter account to help keep you up to date on what's going on in my musical world, so if you'd like to stay in touch, follow me @JonIrabagon.

I'm on several new recordings that will find their way to iTunes, CD Baby, etc. in the next couple of months, including records from the Dave Douglas Quintet, Mostly Other People do the Killing, Mike Pride's From Bacteria to Boys, the Mary Halvorson Quintet and Septet, and the Hot Club of Detroit.  Keep coming back for updates and reviews.

Finally, I'm happy to announce my new record label, Irabbagast Records, which will help document the rumblings of my mind digitally.  On November 6th, the first to releases on the label will drop simultaneously, both extensions of previous albums.  "I Don't Hear Nothin' but the Blues Volume 2: Appalachian Haze" is the 2nd installment of my group featuring Mike Pride, and this time we've added guitar whiz Mick Barr to the mix.  Also, "Unhinged," the new record from my concept "Outright!" will drop, featuring Ralph Alessi, Jacob Sacks, John Hebert and Tom Rainey, as well as many, many special guests.

I'll be updating the site more to keep you posted on the new happenings, as well as to lend some insight into what's going on in these recordings!

Thanks for checking in, and see you soon!
