The CD will be released on the Reykjavik Jazz Festival, August 28th, but until then it is available for pre-order exclusively from Bandcamp, including an immediate download of the album and a 5 page pdf of extended liner notes. The first 50 pre-orders will also receive a free download of McLemore's debut album Found Music" from 2006 with the talents of Tony Malaby, Ben Monder and Ben Street.
The title track Remote Location" is a reference to the drummer's home of seven years, and the homesickness that goes along with being a transplant. The other compositions are named for places and people that inspired him (the closing piece is a tribute to the late Paul Motian), and there's even a duet with his wife Gunnlaugs about their cooking together.
Taken together they paint a picture with amazing variation, yet sewn from the same aesthetic thread.
