Alex Bortnichak

This month we welcome Alex Bortnichak, songwriter/bandleader of Eating Club and drummer of The Sparta Philharmonic! We discussed his latest projects, his personal journey as a musician and songwriter, and the joys and challenges of recording outside a conventional studio.  We also played some wonderfully varied improvisations, from the snarling and rocking to the beautiful and meditative.  The episode includes:

0:00- S&DMM Theme (Sean on sax, Dave on guitar, and Alex on drums)

10:30- “Homing (Told You So)” by The Sparta Philharmonic

30:00- Improvisation 1 (Sean on Flute, Dave on guitar, and Alex on drums)

46:28- Improvisations 2 and 3 (Sean on flute, Alex on accordion/whistling, and Dave on djembe/vocals)

58:15- “Grand Junction” by Eating Club
