Leesta Vall Sound Recordings is pleased to welcome Washington DC's Nicole Saphos Band to Live Sessions on April 19th, 2019. The session is available exclusively via preorder!

Here's how it works: We'll cut a 7" lathe cut vinyl record of a song of your choosing for each person that orders between now and the session date. No two records will be the same and only one copy of each will be made.  Your record will include a one-of-a-kind performance from the band, cut specifically for you.

And, you choose the song!  Just choose from the list above, and they will even deliver a personal message right on the record before they go into your performance ...pretty special!

Quantities and time are limited, so don't sleep on this one....

The limited edition lathe cut record releases are made on a modified antique record cutting lathe from the 1950's. Each record is handmade, one at a time, in real time, by a real person.

Estimated ship date: 4/21/19

DC Jazz Loft @ Rhizome

Rhizome, 6950 Maple Street NW, Washington DC

This month’s installment of the DC Jazz Loft features bassist/vocalist Nicole Saphos and vibraphonist Chris Barrick, two respected young musicians starting to make waves on the District’s scene.

Like always, things get going at 7 p.m. at Rhizome DC, just steps from the Takoma Metro stop. There are no tickets, just donations collected at the door ($10 suggested) — 100 percent of which go to the performing artists. The event is all-ages. And all musicians who come out are encouraged to bring their instruments; the night will end in an open jam, and anything can happen at the loft.
