Multi-instrumentalist and composer Jimmy Goodman and his band A Viberatto are gearing up for a release party in honor of their sophomore album of all-original instrumentals, “A Viberatto B” (on King of Beasts Records). The celebration is slated to take place on Thursday evening (November 28) at BSP Lounge in Kingston.
The live trio performance will feature the album’s core musicians – Jimmy Goodman on vibes and piano; former Ministry keyboardist, producer/engineer Kol Marshall on bass, acoustic and electric piano and synthesizer; and multi-instrumentalist Guthrie Lord, on guitar, bass, piano, bells and “Guituthrie,” a guitar/bass hybrid of his own creation.
In 1999, Goodman opened Transporterraum NYC recording studio with Gordon Raphael, and they hit big with the debut album by the Strokes, Is This It?, with Raphael producing. That album was named “Best CD of the Decade” by NME magazine (UK) and #2 of the decade by Rolling Stone.
Goodman relocated to the Hudson Valley in 2001, opening Leopard Studio in Stone Ridge, where he has since recorded over 100 bands from around world, including several with Garth Hudson, former keyboardist for Rock and Roll Hall of Famers the Band.
On Thursday evening at BSP Lounge in Kingston, Emily Sprauge will open the show at 8pm, followed by A Viberatto at 9pm and Todd Nelson’s TN3 at 10pm. Admission is by donation at the door.
