Now I Understand (MP3 Album)


(2006) Club d’Elf’s debut studio recording was over 8 years in the making! This stunning audio kaleidoscope takes the listener through a strange and wondrous (and sometimes dark & scary) journey through the many musical styles that Club d’Elf has ingested and digested, including jazz, hip-hop, electronica, rock, world trance, etc. Produced and arranged by bassist Mike Rivard (with mixes by Scotty Hard, among others), it features the contributions of 25 musicians, including an entrancing vocal turn on 60’s chestnut “A Toy For a Boy” by Jenifer Jackson.


Jenifer Jackson (vocals), Paul Stiller (vocals), Allan Chase (alto sax), Tom Hall (tenor sax), Joel Springer (tenor sax), Brahim Fribgane (oud, percussion), Mat Maneri (electric viola), Reeves Gabrels (guitar), Gerry Leonard (guitar), Duke Levine (guitar), Randy Roos (guitar), David Tronzo (slide guitar), John Medeski (keyboards), Alain Mallet (keyboards), Jere Faison (sampler, keyboard), Peter Adams (synth), Mister Rourke (turntables), DJ C (turntables), DJ Logic (turntables), DJ Axel Foley (turntables), Mike Rivard (electric & acoustic basses, sintir, tamboura), Jerry Leake (tablas & percussion), Erik Kerr (drums – all except #5, 11), Jay Hilt (drums on #2, 4 & 5), Billy Martin – drums (#11) with Cailyn & Liana Kerr (vocals on #13)
