What an exciting week for Pi Recordings!

Our latest release: Steve Lehman Octet’s Travail, Transformation, & Flow is out, and the critical accolades have been amazing. Nate Chinen in The New York Times put it in his Critic’s Pick list, calling it “Superb…a perfectly ultramodern gesture.” Ben Ratliff, also of The Times, also gave it a rave review in this feature on radio station WBGO’s great new show: The Checkout. While you are there, be sure to “check out” this INTERVIEW with Steve conducted by show host Josh Jackson. Finally, over at our favorite blog Destination Out, Chilly Jay and Prof. Drew LeDrew, were nice enough to preview the CD for their readers.

But enough for Steve, we have a new BLOG post from our resident smart kid and fine musician Rafiq Bhatia. He took the words right out of our mouths, except he’s more articulate with those words. There is also a nice link from NPR’s fine new blog, where Patrick Jarenwattananon wrote that Pi Recordings “seems to put out at least one of my favorite new releases every year.” Wow! Thanks Patrick!

If you are in New York City this week, be sure to come to The Vision Festival. The lineup is fantastic as usual, and it’s a great opportunity to immerse yourself in music and mingle with this super-friendly community of music lovers. Seth and I will be there selling all of our great releases, T-shirts and other goodies. Be sure to stop by and say hi!
