Credits and Notes

Original Boardwalk Style, a live album from Trey Anastasio and the Undectet, was released June 10th, 2008 on Trey’s own Rubber Jungle Records to benefit the Seven Below Arts Initiative, a program established by Trey in 2006 to foster artistic development and support arts education in the state of Vermont. The program invites artists to work on projects at The Barn, Trey’s former recording studio located outside of Burlington, Vermont. The residencies are designed to provide artists with a quiet, inspiring, and supportive environment for individual and/or collaborative work. Residents at The Barn will be asked to share their artistic process with the local community. This may involve a public talk, an educational activity for youth, or a professional workshop, to be determined by the resident and program coordinator. For more information on the Seven Below Arts Initiative, please visit the Non-Profit Page or visit Burlington City Arts.

The album was recorded at the House of Blues in Atlantic City, NJ on December 30th and 31st of 2006, coming at the end of the band’s holiday tour. The two shows marked the culmination of a long year of touring and growth as what began as a six-piece sextet in the beginning of the year had progressed into a full-force eleven member Undectet.

The raw energy of a well-oiled band at the top of its game permeated the set as the composer/vocalist/guitarist led The Undectet – comprised of Tony Hall (bass, vocals), Ray Paczkowski (keyboards), Jeff Sipe (drums), Christina Durfee (vocals, synthesizer), Jennifer Hartswick (vocals, trumpet), Peter Apfelbaum (saxophone, flute), Russell Remington (saxophone, flute), Jeff Cressman (trombone), Dave Grippo (saxophone) and Cyro Baptista (percussion) – through electrifying big band arrangements of his classic songs, replete with big horns and dazzling Brazilian percussive stylings.

Original Boardwalk Style features over 75 minutes of music, remixed from the multitrack masters by Trey and Ben Collette at Rubber Jungle Studios and mastered by Fred Kevorkian at Kevorkian Mastering. In addition to CD and digital download formats, the album is available as a double-gatefold, audiophile grade 180-gram LP Vinyl pressing.
