about

"Michael Garfield has some absolutely amazing chops...the musicianship on this album is truly wonderful."
- Marquee Magazine (Denver) bit.ly/marqueeonmg

In April 2010, I embarked on an eight-month, 30,000 mile tour across the United States…and recorded everything, knowing that one day I would boil it all down to the most potent hour of heart-rending pleasure I could possibly produce. These are my definitive live recordings as a songwriter, instrumental composer, and gypsy philosopher...a virtual concert experience for you to enjoy while I'm locked away brewing my next full-length opus of acoustic adventure and eschatological angel jazz.

Performed and recorded at the following time-spaces:

09 May - Whole Earth Festival, Davis CA
15 May - Om Shan Tea, San Francisco CA
19 June - 3-Sided Whole, Albuquerque NM
03 July - Mishawaka Amphitheatre, Bellvue CA
08 August - Rootwire Festival, Logan OH
14 August - Om Shan Tea, San Francisco CA
19 August - Flagbrew, Flagstaff AZ
21 August - 3-Sided Whole, Albuquerque NM
23 October - Art Outside Festival, Rockdale TX
30 October - Trans-Amoeba, Chicago IL
04 November - Cyclops Books, Baltimore MD
09 November - Jivamukti Yoga, New York NY

Finished at 11:43 pm MST, January 8 2011 - Boulder CO

I've included what I believe to be the world's first improvised live ukulele-looping number. Whosoever locates an earlier instance will be rewarded creatively...

Special thanks to UC Davis, Oshan Anand & Gordi Nathan, Dr. Blue & the 3-Sided Whole community, Whitewater Ramble, Papadosio, Tim Reuter & Erica Hahn, Travis Rice, ArtSeen Alliance, Dan Simonborg & the Trans-Amoeba crew, Robin Gunkel & Michael Henderson, Jonathan Phillips, and everyone else who helped make the Love Without End 2010 Tour a reality.

This is one half - the living, personal half - of a double-release. The other half, an hour of improvised experimental loopscapes, is available for free here: bit.ly/glasschrysanthemum
