In late 2019, I made "dance, ghost" available in a limited edition of just 347 physical copies, individually stamped and titled. You could get the album only by hand at shows, not anywhere online. I'd wanted this album, my most personal one, to always be delivered as part of a personal exchange.

The world has changed since then.

I'm writing this note on April 23, 2020, which was planned as our debut playing this music at An Die Musik — a favorite live music room in Baltimore. It seemed the right day to release "dance, ghost" online.

You can steam or download the album (from Bandcamp only) for free. I hope you enjoy and perhaps find some solace in this music. At this moment, is is certainly a gift for me at this moment to listen again to Coco, Romeir and Sarah's beautiful musicianship.

By turns nocturnal, reflective, funky, and cinematic, the music of violinist and composer David Schulman + Quiet Life Motel is a weave of jazz harmonies, shimmering orchestral textures, and international grooves.
