Song Premiere: “Mixed Signals” (Live at The 5 Spot) by Jack Silverman

We are honored to share with you”Mixed Signals,” the ghostly lead single from Jack Silverman’s new live tape, Live at The 5 Spot, which is set to be released digitally and on cassette by Centripetal Force Records on November 12. Check it out:

Available today for preorders, Live at The 5 Spot features the Nashville Ambient Ensemble guitarist leading a tight group of session players (Medicine King’s Robert Crawford and Brook Sutton on drums and bass respectively, The Wood Brothers’ Jano Rix on key and Chris West on flute, saxophone and clarinet) through slinking, shadowy jazz rock.

“Mixed Signals,” the smoky opening number on this three-track release, struts triumphantly, sounding not unlike something that would play as the credits roll at the end of a neo-noir film.

This performance, which originally appeared as a streaming video back in April (and will be released as a film by yk Records on November 12) is a fine example of Silverman’s ability to combine bluesy and celestial vibes together into something moving and wholly unique. It’s a must-have for fans of The Lounge Lizards and Tortoise. Click here to preorder your copy now.
