ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Jake T & The Jamboree is both a clever children’s musical project and a children’s charity program, currently working to support the InnVision Shelter Network of the San Francisco Bay area. This project is dedicated to the needs of children within the shelter network.

The Jamboree is not actually a band, not even in the made for television sense. The music is real enough, hand crafted to entertain preschoolers and their families. The reference to Jamboree (a noisy gathering, a boisterous celebration) is actually meant to represent you, hopefully coming together with me to support the shelter network through this project or any other program trying to give back. But the main reason for the name is all the good ones were already taken.

I’m grateful to be a busy family guy with a steady day job but as a result this album was recorded off and on in fits and starts from 2009-2015 in untreated garages, corporate conference rooms and the tiny practice spaces of Bridgepoint Music. I think no project is ever truly finished, "done". At some point you just give up trying to make it perfect. My wife thought this seemed to be as good a time as any.

Mostly out of necessity (and if I’m honest, a little bit of ego), I did all the arrangements, "grown-up" voices and played 93% of all the instruments myself. If it wasn’t me it was a computer sample. The project was recorded on a Mac Book Pro using either a Digi 003R+, 11 Rack or MBox2 depending on the part and location.

Playing all the parts myself doesn’t mean I didn’t have help. I want to give a special thank you to Jake Schaefer who mixed the project with me, Ralph Richbourg and my wife Andressa for her support/patience with me on this project. Thank you to all the children who lent their wonderful voices and personalities. Hopefully this is something people will tease them about for the rest of their lives.

Thanks for listening and reading. I hope you enjoy it.

Best regards,
Jake
