Title: Signifying Monkeys
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

Music = Love. All proceeds from the Signifying Monkeys tunes go directly to Millennium Promise, combating extreme poverty in Africa. Having collaborated live on innumerable occasions over the past decade, Ari 'Doc o' Rock' (bass/producer), Doug James (vocals), and Billy Shaffer (drums) figured it was high time to commit to audio posterity. With typical light-hearted, high-energy approach, the trio lays the basis for 10 tunes - 3.5 original and 6.5 classic covers - showing off their eclectic taste and showcasing many of Chicago's finest jazz and rock musicians. The song selection criteria was 'songs we really like,' and the choice of musician collaborators required passionate and tasteful players, including a 4 piece horn section. Each tune leaves plenty of space for improvisation, just like their live performances. Recorded mostly at Uptown Recording Studio, Transient Sound Studio, and Ari's home. Masterfully engineered at Uptown Recording Studio by Ari's longtime associate Rob Ruccia. Horn lines by Ari.
