Michael Steinman - Second Residence - CD Project

Hello everyone & welcome to this money pot!ENGLISH: I've been working on this CD for a couple years now and we are fast approaching the end of the recording, mixing, editing, mastering etc, etc and it's time to come up with real money to make this happen. My first CD "Current Residence" came out about 4 years ago. It was a totally different style of jazz and a very different type of musical situation I was living at that time.  Our style and repertoire has evolved enormously since then and this new album is much more contemporary - inspired by gospel, rock, funk, fusion and even some New Orleans Second Line !!- for the purists out there, I did say "inspired by"   :-)   The working name is "Second Residence"  - clever, don't you think? It features:Lionel Pellissier on DrumsStephane Mondesir on PianoSebastien Alquier on Basseand 2 or 3 surprise guest soloists  and me on trombones and vocals... There's music by The Meters, The Crusaders, Charlie Hunter, Joe Zawinul, Leroy Jones, Donald Fagan, Stealer's Wheel, Duke Ellington and more... I think the CD is simply really cool ...  I'm really excited about it and I hope that you will like it too! I need some help to bring it all together and finish the production, pressing, graphics, licensing...  If you help me with a donation, think of it as pre-paying your CD.  And you will be a "producer" !! With luck, I will be able to get everything finished and submitted to the pressing company at the beginning of October with a delivery date of mid-October.  I'm heading to Japan on October 17 to give several promotional concerts and I really hope I will have the finished product with me. If you would like to help me out on this, I would appreciate it very much.   You can donate as much or as little as you want of course - every contribution will help!   I will offer a free CD as a gift for donations of 20 euros / 2 CDs for 40 euros... For huge donations - let's talk about giving a private concert in your home or town !!   :-) in music,Michael Steinman FRANCAIS: Je travaille sur ce CD depuis deux ans maintenant et nous approchons rapidement de la fin de l'enregistrement, du mixage, du montage, du mastering, etc. Et il est temps de trouver de l'argent pour y arriver. Mon premier CD "Current Residence" est sorti il ​​y a environ 4 ans. C'était un style de jazz totalement différent et un type de situation musicale très différent que je vivais à cette époque. Notre style et notre répertoire ont énormément évolué depuis et ce nouvel album est beaucoup plus contemporain - inspiré du gospel, du rock, du funk, de la fusion et même de la New Orleans Second Line !! - pour les puristes, j'ai dit "inspiré par"  :-)  Le nom de ce nouvel album est "Second Residence" - malin, vous ne pensez pas?  Il comporte:Lionel Pellissier à la batterieStéphane Mondesir au pianoSébastien Alquier à la basseet 2 ou 3 solistes invités surprise et moi au trombone et au chant...  Il y a de la musique par The Meters, The Crusaders, de Charlie Hunter, de Joe Zawinul, de Leroy Jones, de Donald Fagan, de Stealer's Wheel, de Duke Ellington et bien plus encore ...  Je pense que le CD est tout simplement génial ... J'en suis vraiment ravi et j'espère que vous l'aimerez aussi! J'ai besoin d'aide pour tout rassembler et terminer la production, le pressage, les graphismes, les licences ... Si vous m'aidez avec un don, c'est comme vous pré-payez votre CD! Et vous serez un "producteur" en plus !! Avec un peu de chance, je serai en mesure de tout finir et de le soumettre à l'entreprise de pressage au début du mois d'octobre avec une date de livraison à la mi-octobre. Je vais au Japon le 17 octobre pour jouer plusieurs concerts promotionnels et j'espère vivement avoir le produit fini avec moi. Si vous souhaitez m'aider, je vous en serais très reconnaissant. Bien entendu, vous pouvez donner autant ou aussi peu que vous voulez, chaque contribution aidera! Je vais offrir un CD gratuit en cadeau pour des dons de 20 euros / 2 CD pour 40 euros ...



Let's get back to Circus!

Let's get back to Circus!

Hello everybody to our call for donation! We run a social circus project named "Escuela de la Comedia y el Mimo" in Granada, Nicaragua. We offer an artistic and cultural programme for children and teenagers, who come to join our circus classes in the afternoon. The project is very important for round about 35 children, who are participating in our classes. We are seven coaches, who live together and we teach acrobatics, theatre, juggling, languages and handcraft. (More information: As you might already heard in the news, the political situation in Nicaragua is very complicated these days. The tourism has almost collapsed completely and many people lost theirs employments. Our project is suffering as well, because we can no longer realise our "Dinner show" for tourists. The tethered hostel also doesn't work any longer. The importance of our social project has grown, because we can give them an alternative to their daily life, which is more than before pressed by the political situation. In short, we've got to cope these difficulties and with your support it would be way easier to get back to circus. We don't have sufficient materials to integrate all of the children to our classes, so we need juggle equipment. We also want to be able to give some snacks and drinks to the kids in the afternoon to relieve their families a little bit. And to identificate theirselves more with the project we thought about printing shirts for the kids and the teachers.  We can't effort these things at the moment, this is why we need your help to improve our circus classes. We want to get back to Circus!  Are you in?! Love, Peace and Circus! the Team of the Escuela de la Comedia y el Mimo  Hints by the provider: With just 1-click you can support this creative artistic or cultural project* Give however much you want* All payments are 100% secureThank you!
