507. Sam Prekop - sam prekop

originally uploaded by jrd550.
As you'd expect Sam's solo debut sounds a lot like the sea and cake - but one does notice that he's not playing with his usual band. He's joined by Archer Prewitt, Jim O'Rourke, Chad Taylor and Josh Abrams... I of course know Jim and Archer but must confess I'm not sure who Josh and Chad are... Sam's record is smooth, less frantic than some of S&C's later stuff (and 'frantic' for the sea and cake does not mean the same thing when talking about other bands) - the disc is laid back, melodic and relaxed - a worthy addition to the chicago jazz/pop cannon all these guys hail from.
