I Got To Move (original version)


“I Got To Move” -the Incredible Casuals, from “New Hats For Summer”, #2 in the Inedible Casserole series, recorded by Rikki Bates.

We have five completely different versions of this one, by three different bands (3 by the Casuals and 1 each by the Chandler Travis Philharmonic and by Lester), and I always thought it […]

All Day Long He Dreamt of Her (and more)

“All Day Long He Dreamt of Her” / “Horse, Pt. 1“- shot by Ron Daniels. Actually, this is a couple songs kind of jumbled together (guess that’s how things were going that night): “All Day Long He Dreamt of Her” has been around for years, don’t know why; and “”Horse, Pt. 1” is the first […]

A Mysterious Selection


“A Mysterious Selection” by The Mystery Singer, recorded live at the Jamaica Plain Porchfest, July 9, by The Valet. Don’t know how this man was, nor what he was singing (love to find out more, if anyone out there has any clues!) All I know was that he wandered up during our show saying that […]

Well, the 4th of July parade with the Philharmonic Trombone Shout Band was wonderful, and Andrea Daniels shot it brilliantly, bless ‘er, so here’s the proof … can’t thank everyone -all the players and drivers (esp. Ron n Andrea) and crazy folks on the street -enough!

In honor of our return to weekly Summer gigs at Bubala’s in Provincetown, here’s some a of the Philharmonic romping through Maxine Nightingale’s “Get Right Back Where We Started From” right across the street, in front of Spiritus Pizza, a week ago. We were playing on the sidewalk of as part of the closing party […]

Introducing... (RadioBall #18)

“When Can We Do This Again” from RadioBall #18, “Introducing the Chandler Travis Philharmonic“; recorded live at Johnny D’s, June 17, 2000, by Dana Westover. This one kinda rocks a little, courtesy in part of the very fine rhythm section underpinnings of Rikki Bates on drums and John Styklunas on string bass. The CTP proves […]

Three-O, Halloween 2015

  “HORSE” – CT demo, recorded May 13, 2016. This one was commisioned by my friend Dietrich Strause on the occasion of his friend Dan Greif’s bachelor party. Dan had written most of the lyric (along with instructions on how best to deliver it, years ago, but had apparently never quite got around to […]
