Map of the Woulds February Freejams

Warmup Jam (10 megs)
Never Frickin' Know (16 megs)

Here are a couple of fully improvised movements from this past Monday's 'Map of the Woulds' rehearsal.  Before some reps on our next video-capture-candidate-tune and inbetwixt some experimentation with some new compositional ideas, we cleared the air with some fully improvised exploration.  As one might expect, the "Warmup Jam" was the first playing of the night, with the second jam (named for the odd vocal-jam which kicked it off) coming very near the end.

Here's a short warmup jam from the session where 'Map of the Woulds' captured their live-at-home video of "Under the Tent".  As with 'Under the Tent', Woody is on Bass on this one and I'm on on guitar.

Map of the Woods at the Fremont Fair!

Here's a photo of the Center Stage,
and the band that played before us.
Here's a brief clip of the jam at the end of "Under the Tent", as we gradually transition to a drum solo and switch from Andrew on guitar to Woody on guitar.

This was a fun live debut for the three of us!  Thanks to all of the generous listeners who joined us!

'Map of the Woods' April 22nd Capture Session

Warmup Jam (8 megs)

Here's a pleasantly weird, reckless, mellow, and oddly satisfying warmup jam from the session where we captured video and multitrack audio for You and I.  This one features Woody Frank on bass, Adrian Woods on the whisper-kit, and Me Woods on guitar.

April 10th "Today" Capture Session!

Singularity Jam (4 megs)
Golden Bear (7 megs)
Woody's New Tune Pieces

Here are a couple of bonus audio-tracks from the day we captured the live/studio video for "Today".  The first clip is our warmup jam dedicated to the recent first-photos-of-a-black-hole.  The second is an edited rough capture of an instrumental called "Golden Bear".  This was the first time we sortof strung the whole thing together, and we were probably more focused on the structure than the jamming -- with what is likely to become a heavily improv-extended tune -- but some nice stuff happened anyway!

Mostly for band reference, I'm also including a third clip of us running various pieces of a strong idea Woody brought in!
