A Skafish Christmas in July

Yes, you heard right!

Starting today, Monday, July 9, 2018 through Sunday, July 15, 2018, take advantage of this unheard of price and get my holiday jazz album “Tidings of Comfort and Joy – a Jazz Piano Trio Christmas” on CD for just $5 from CDBaby! Keep in mind that this offer is ONLY good on CDBaby and just for one week. Also, it gets better: Buy more than one album and get a 10% discount! Click here to purchase!

You’ll get 68 minutes of pure holiday jazz, superb musicianship, unique reworkings and fresh arrangements of holiday classics. Each song was cut in 1 to 4 takes and recorded and mixed on the highest quality analog recorders, giving you the warm, rich sound that classic tape recording provides.

This is a fantastic gift at a low price for those who want high quality music for their holidays. It is also an album for those who might not be a big fan of holiday music, but could enjoy something in that vein that is musically sophisticated and done well. No gimmicks — no technological trickery — just pure holiday jazz.

RE Urgh! A Music War being shown in Chicago this July: I’ve asked everybody to stop contacting me about this because I am not in this particular version of the film being shown.

The Chicago Film Society is screening a much edited down version with many bands removed and I am edited out as well. As my fans have said, “So much for authenticity.”

Had I been in this version and had I been asked, I would have been happy to introduce the film and do a Q&A, because my band is the only Chicago act that was featured in Urgh!.

People have been frantically checking their DVD’s to see if Sign of the Cross by Skafish is included. The answer is yes. My band is included in the DVD.

You can pick up a copy of the DVD-R by Warner Brothers from Amazon. And, if you’re interested in hearing the history of that version and how I’m not getting paid anything for it, check out my blog post here.  And, yes, I was in that edit.

A Word About My You Tube Channel

Posted by Skafish on

You Tube has just made it harder to monetize videos. Now, a channel will have to have at least 1000 subscribers to be able to monetize. This will really hurt the working musicians, for whom every penny counts.

Currently, the Skafish channel has 179 subscribers. If you can help me out by subscribing to my channel and watching the videos, it would be greatly appreciated, and that way, I can try to post more content. Also, please spread the word to anyone who is interested in Skafish. As an indie artist, your support can really make such a difference for the better! Here is my You Tube channel link: https://www.youtube.com/user/sKaFiSh

Thanks so much, Skafish
