About a year ago, percussionist, vibraphonist, and dulcimer-ist Jeff Berman and guitarist David Bernabo made a duo record. Prior to making it, they were talking about making it for a few years. Then they made it, and talked about releasing it for a year or so. Now they have released it.

Sound Scene Express Previews STEP DOWN TOOMEY by David Bernabo

Sound Scene Express preview the first single from STEP DOWN TOOMEY, my new solo album. Following in the fashion of 2016's THE INN, this album takes improvised drum recordings and finds me again composing to the drums. This is a short album -- 7 songs -- since I lost interest in this technique, but I'm extremely happy with these songs, which go to further extremes than the tunes on THE INN.
