Jenny Conlee, (keyboard and accordion player for The Decemberists, Black Prairie, and others) is releasing her first full-length album of instrumental music in collaboration with husband and producer Steve Drizos (drummer for Jerry Joseph)
The record “French Kayaking Music” was written for the film “Voyagers Without Trace” by Ian McCluskey and NW Documentary. Using mostly accordion and piano, the album is a set of instrumental pieces, both beautiful and haunting, echoing the music of France and the old west. The two will be joined by a small ensemble of musicians including members of The Blue Cranes.

Since their formation in 2007, Blue Cranes have become a key player in the Portland, Oregon creative music/DIY scene and one of the most exciting groups to keep tabs on in the Northwest. They've developed a singular musical voice grounded in melody and explosive improvisations--marking off their unique microcosmic territory in "post-jazz" circles.
