Local bands take anniversary
By Pete Williams
O NCE again, it's time to go cruisin'
with Ann Arbor's local music
For those of you who were not yet of
Ann Arbor consciousness two years
ago, this music cruise is a return trip.
It's Cruisin' Ann Arbor II, the sequel
album to the Ann Arbor Music Project's
Although the production has been
tightened up on Cruisin' II (It's being
mixed in a studio this time instead of
someone's living room), the idea
behind the sequel is the same as that of
That idea is to showcase local bands
and elicit interest in the Ann Arbor
music scene. "We're trying to get
national attention focused inward,"
said Tom Witaker, drummer with Map
of the World, one of the bands included
in the new album. "We want to make it
so bands don't have to go to another city
to get attention-so they can make it
Witaker is part of the Ann Arbor
Music Project, a local group of
promoters, musicians, and the like that
is producing Cruisin' II. AAMP was the
producer of the original Cruisin' two
years ago, and the group felt that this
year would be a good one to resurrect
the idea. "It's something we'd like to do
every couple of years," Whitaker said.
"It was also a. self-conscious thing,"
Whitaker added. "We didn't feel we had
enough jazz on the first album and
some of the younger bands have a real
As far as the production, mixing will
be done at Al Nalli Studios, which is in
the process now of being equipped for
Cruisin II. Instead of the 8-track recor-
dings AAMP made for the original
Cruisin', they will use 16 track
machines-a change the producers
believe will greatly increase the quality
of the master recordings.
"I think the bands we have are
professional enough to put in a good
recording session," said P.J. Ryder,
who is also involved in AAMP. "I'm
confident they can do it."
This time around, jazz is taken care
of. Tonight's recording session, which
will be done live at U-Club, will feature
an all jazz program with Lunar Glee
Club, Ron Brooks Trio (with special
guest, The Bill Lucas Quartet), and
Kathy Moore and Stephanie Ozer.
Like the jazz session, all recording
sessions for the album will be held at
9:30, tonight through Saturday night at
Thursday night's theme strays away 4
from jazz and toward more traditional
rock and roll with The Buzztones, Steve
Nardella's Rock and Roll Trio, and the
On Friday, it's time for pop rock.
Aluminum Beach, Map of the World,
and The Slang-to be exact. And, the
last night will be-for lack of a better
term-alternative music night. Satur-
day night's bands are The State, Sud-
den Death, and The Evaders.
Ryder said he is pleased with the
diverse music offered by the bands.
"We have one jazz night, which is
something we didn't have on the last
album," he said. "And we also get the
other side, with a little more heavy
AAMP is starting by putting 2000
albums in the record stores and Ryder
looks for a receptive market in the Ann
"I think that more than 2000 people
will want to snap up an album," he said.
"A lot of people will just want to get one
on their way out of Ann Arbor to try and
remember the bands they saw."
The Buzztones will be one of the local bands featured on Cruisin' Ann Arbor II. The band will hold a live recording
session at 9:30 on Thursday in the U-Club.
