RED OAK DUO'S DEBUT ALBUM IS NOW AVAILABLE AT CDBABY.COM

Red Oak Duo is a natural synthesis of jazz and country. A
sophisticated jazz vibe intertwines with the pastoral sounds of
country and folk to create a unique and evocative portrait of
modern-day America.
These two acclaimed composers and improvisors, whose
relationship dates back to their days as students at the
California Institute of the Arts, have crafted a unique duo act.
Reminiscent of Bill Frisell, Pat Metheny and Keith Jarrett, the
landscapes of America are painted in stark detail on their self-
titled debut album.

CLICK ON THE "MERCH" PAGE TO PURCHASE.


HOME is an intimate encapsulation of guitarist Storm Nilson's journey through American music. Nine inspiring pieces, drawing from jazz and Americana traditions, conjure up a nostalgic story of an America remembered. Popular songs of the past are skillfully reshaped in this creative selection presenting both original and reinterpreted modern works.

From New Orleans to Alaska, HOME takes listeners along on a journey through America's vast and diverse musical identity, past and present. Willow Weep for Me and Tennessee Waltz invoke a taste of the old south. A masterful reinterpretation of Bill Frisell’s "Ghost Town" carries the audience along through the vast, expansive west, and lands expertly with Nilson's own "Yasha's Tune," set in Alaska, the magical place of his youth.

HOME tells a story about American music, and about the powerful personal/professional journey Nilson chooses to share. “The fusion between jazz and rural-based music is not only beautiful but naturally blends my feelings about my own geographical past coupled with a musical journey across the continent. I hope to provide others with a little taste of my experiences and influences—and connect an intangible artistic expression sensed in other musicians with my own experience and natural influences."
