Published Apr 04, 2011Best known as the bassist for Dirty Projectors, singer-songwriter Nat Baldwin is also an accomplished double bassist who trained under free jazz legend Anthony Braxton. He has released numerous other projects, and this spring, he will return with a new solo album called People Changes.
The album is bookended by covers, opening with a new version of Arthur Russell's "A Little Lost" and concluding with Kurt Weisman's "Let My Spirit Rise." In between those reworks are five original songs. A press release explains that the tracks were first written in 2007 and evolved over three years before being recorded in the spring of 2010.
People Changes will be available on May 24 via Western Vinyl. Baldwin will test the material on a solo tour that brings him to Toronto's Double Double Land on April 6.
