Glad you found us. Were the directions OK? My name is Dan Palladino and I'll be your humble host during your stay.
The mission here at Riddleworks is to provide a home for my music. That music may take the form of an electronic/symphonic piece, a Beatles-influenced pop tune or an improvised space-jazz exploration. Let's just call it quirky pop/rock, leaning toward experimental space-jazz, drizzled with a funky blues topping. Dang marketing department! You're all fired!
Anyway, feel free to wander around and make yourself at home. Did I mention that I'm available to work on your project? (Click here for details.) If you need anything, just pull on the silk rope and I'll come running with a cup of hot tea.
With Pat Ruh at Cafe Vienna, Princeton, NJ. 2 - 4PM. Enjoy the outdoors in Princeton. We'll be playing jazz standards for you.
With Todd Collins Trio at Shanghai Jazz, Madison, NJ. 7 - 10PM. Todd Collins: mandolin/acoustic guitar, Dave Hofstra: bass, Dan Palladino: electric guitar. New original compositions, Monk, New Orleans, and improvisatory hi jinks. No cover. Reservations suggested for dinner.
Check back through the summer for more dates. Have fun!
Happy New Year! Lots going on.
Tamra Hayden Releases New CD
Back in November, I had the great honor of playing guitars on Tamra Hayden's latest release, Love is...If you like jazz/cabaret music, you'll love this album. Tamra is an incredibly talented vocalist and writer. She's also one of the nicest people I know, and she kills it on this project! Check it out here.
