The Third Mind
"I had a crazy idea and was looking for musicians who perhaps didn’t think it was so insane." - Dave AlvinMany years ago I’d been reading John Szwed’s excellent biography of Miles Davis, “So What”, and was fascinated by his thorough descriptions of how Mr. Davis and his producer, Teo Macero, created some of his classic electric albums like Bitches Brew and Jack Johnson. Basically, Miles would gather great musicians in a studio, pick a key and a groove and then record everything live over several days. Then he and Mr. Macero would edit and shape these improvisations into compositions. Having never recorded like that, I had a fantasy to try it someday if the fates ever allowed. — Dave Alvin
THE THIRD MIND is a new band featuring an all-star line-up of players: Dave Alvin (guitar, vocals), Victor Krummenacher (bass, vocals), David Immerglück (guitar, keyboards, vocals), and Michael Jerome (drums, percussion) with special guest Jesse Sykes (guitar, vocals).
Their self-titled debut album will be released on February 14, 2020 and is available for pre-order now. The six-song collection features one original composition and five covers.
The First Edition CD and LP includes two bonus tracks – remixes of “East/West,” one of which is mixed by legendary mixing engineer Tchad Blake (The Black Keys, Sheryl Crow, Arctic Monkeys). The album features the art of Tony Fitzpatrick with a different collectible poster in both the LP and CD package.
