The musical accompaniment is by Ravi Shankar and Chatur Lal. This virtuoso film is the result of a collaboration between Norman McLaren and Claude Jutra. Directed by Claude Jutra & Norman McLaren – 1957

The Dustbowl Revivial and Dick Van Dyke: ‘Never Had to Go’

We had the luck and the privilege to share the first single “Never Had To Go” from our 2015 release With A Lampshade On with the man himself, Dick Van Dyke and his lovely wife Arlene. They said come over and let’s do a video. So we did. What a dreamy guy. At 89, he really can still dance like he’s in Mary Poppins!

The album drops officially on Tuesday July 21 – released by Signature Sounds Recordings.
