The Bats of Ballard - Interlude (featuring Christian Heilman)

At The Player's Lounge, The Bats of Ballard assemble every month or so for two to three hours of improvisation. We do take breaks, and often, Christian Heilman (Keys) takes the chance to generate some ambiance. October 17, 2016 was such an evening, and Christian, without the rest of us even knowing, made this wonder-ful piece of music. This is also the first official look at The Player's Lounge with a bit of an expanded view near the end of the video...

The Bats of Ballard - The Lake City Way

Studio releases by The Bats of Ballard are anything but rare ... there's at least 20 of them. But live performances are quite rare, and this is the first to be released. Improbably, it was recorded live at the intersection of 125th and Lake City Way in Seattle on June 22, 2016 as part of World Music Day. Yeah, kinda weird, but it was a great performance. Here's a 9 minute segment from the show. (This was recorded using an iPhone laying on the ground in front of Amy, mastered by Steve Turnidge).
