2018 Countdown | Middle Blue

And along came Middle Blue, unassuming and chill; Guitarist Brad Farberman, a music critic in his own right, and his band of players who really dig the live music scene - Jared Pauley on the Rhodes, Danny Tamberelli on Bass, world traveler Jeremy Danneman on Alto, Dave Sewelson on Bari, and Jessica Lurie on Tenor. Add in the meticulous and grooving drums of the great Mike Clark and the room is buzzing. Middle Blue hit us with their debut - Love Chords - in March, and it was nothing but a pleasure to just hear music for the sake of the song(s). Sometimes you just want to groove, and Middle Blue fits the bill.
