Drums, Bells – Jerry Granelli. Electric Bass, Bass Guitar – J. Anthony Granelli. Piano, Clavinet, Accordion, Slide Guitar – Jamie Saft. Soprano Saxophone, Alto Saxophone – Peter Epstein. Trombone – Curtis Hasselbring. Recorded at Systems II (Brooklyn), September 13 & 14, 1997.
This is his first recording with his group called Badlands, and the drummer/leader mixes offbeat compositions with scintillating solos for each of the 15 tracks. Of course, it does not hurt to head a septet whose members include such outstanding improvisers as saxophonists Briggan Krauss, Peter Epstein, and Chris Speed, and a trombonist as savvy as Curtis Hasselbring

Jerry Granelli is one of the most widely recognized and highly regarded musicians in Nova Scotia. He is a supportive community leader and mentor for musicians and artists of all ages and backgrounds. Jerry was instrumental in the establishment of the Halifax Jazz Festival (formally the Atlantic Jazz Festival), which over the past 30 years has evolved to become a Signature Event in Halifax and the largest music festival in the Maritimes. Recent highlights among these projects include albums with his band Badlands, a septet with guitars and saxes. Its 1998 album Enter, a Dragon (with accordion) included the ethereal pieces Fainting Sheep and Bou Nora. Another band, V16, is a double-guitar quartet that incorporates samplers. Its self-titled 2003 debut featured the pieces O Bossa, Where Art Thou, Mutator and Black Confederacy.
Classical accordion player Tomi Matsubara's solo album, one of the few in Japan. A masterpiece of the world played on a buttoned keyboard instrument with a range of six octaves and several tones. A colorful expression unique to a breathtaking instrument draws a light world similar to a watercolor painting and evokes the nostalgia buried in memories. It's an intimate album that lets you hear melodies over time. Jerry Granelli & Badlands - Enter, a Dragon (1998).
