Andrew Bird - “Manifest”

My Finest Work Yet was recorded live to tape at Barefoot Studios in Los Angeles, CA. Bird and band went for that Rudy Van Gelder jazz room sound where the instruments bleed in to all the mics in just the right way. Piano plays a strong role on these songs and most of the melodies are tinged with a gospel-jazz-60s soul feel while the lyrics are direct and risk-taking, cutting to the quick of what’s happening in our world. Bird was joined on the album by producer Paul Butler, Tyler Chester on piano and organs, Madison Cunningham on vocals, Alan Hampton on bass, Blake Mills on guitar, Ted Poor on drums, plus Abe Rounds on drums and Mike Viola on guitar on “Archipelago.”
