More Info:

"Spangalang" is a word that Cavaseno and his comrade-at-arms, guitarist Peter Bernstein but often use in reference to swinging music that really had that greasy edge, and that's the name of this Cavaseno-lead ensemble was born. As a straight ahead, jazz quintet, Spangalang perform various intimate jazz performances around the tri-state New York area back in the early 1990s, around the same time "G-Clef" was pursuing his career as a hip-hop musician. Sometime in 1991, at Michael Brorby's Acoustic Recording studio in Brooklyn, an albums worth of music was recorded with Spangalang. This music has never seen the light of day until now, as Cavaseno recently uncovered old metal cassette tapes, did you leave converted and then remastered using the latest technology. Featured on this outing are nothing less than the top tier of mainstream jazz players such as Peter Bernstein and William Ash on guitars, John Webber on bass, Andy Watson on drums and a young 21 year Brad Mehldau on piano.
