American Klassiks: The Live Album

by Klassik

Swing Low 06:03


On Friday, November 16 at Cactus Club in Bay View, WI, Klassik was joined by Nickel&Rose and SistaStrings for a special sold-out performance and live recording. Individual opening sets by the two duos culminated into a dynamic group performance of all five artists to present AMERICAN KLASSIKS. What resulted was an ethereal and magical evening that found all artists uniquely in-sync to deliver a truly one-of-a-kind experience, full of improvisational panache and passion.

The resulting recording and collaboration are presented at a time in America where our diversity and the importance of our individual cultural experiences are of paramount value.

From all involved in this production, we hope you enjoy reliving this live experience as much as we did creating it, and we hope its spirit of hope and perseverance provide you with a guiding light through your darkest times.

Monique & Chauntee Ross of SistaStrings for the amazing string accompaniment, and Johanna Rose and Carl Nichols of Nickel&Rose for rounding out the perfect ensemble to bring the project to its most full and beautiful potential. Alex Hall, sound engineer at Cactus Club in Bay View, for keeping us sounding great as always, along with the perfect hosting duties of the entire Cactus Club staff. A special thank you goes to Lodewijk Broekhuizen for the exquisite live mixing and post-production/mastering work, a labor of love and patience that turned out every bit worth it.

And to my support system and amazing group of loved ones, mentors and friends that keep me grounded and keep me full of love:

To everyone that has been patient and has invested any time, money, support and interest in my passions, I thank you.
