DAVY MOONEY - LIVE AT NATIONAL SAWDUST
Cat. no: SSC1599
Release Date: 30th October 2020
It is easy to take live performances for granted. Easy to overlook the magic that happens when artists come together to express themselves and reach appreciative listeners. There is a certain energy that is only felt in the moment of musical creation, a give and take between musicians and the audience. That communal spirit should not be overlooked, especially, now in these times of quarantine and separation.
Guitarist/composer Davy Mooney knows just how special these experiences are and wanted to capture the essence of their magic on ‘Live at National Sawdust.’ On the recording, Mooney brings together his incredible Hope of Home band, featuring saxophonist John Ellis, pianist Jon Cowherd, bassist Matt Clohesy and drummer Brian Blade, to play old and new material for a receptive group of listeners at Brooklyn’s National Sawdust and to conjure a fabulously warm and heartfelt performance that can be revisited over and over.
