Bassist Pino Palladino and multi-instrumentalist/producer Blake Mills have shared another live studio video for their latest collaborative, experimental piece entitled, “Man From Molise”, which also features saxophonist Sam Gendel. The instrumental will appear on Palladino and Mills’ forthcoming collaboration album, Notes With Attachments, due out March 12th via New Deal/Impulse!
The new live video for “Man From Molise” follows the duo’s first video for the album’s lead track, “Just Wrong”, released last week, and again finds the three musicians in an intimate studio setting for their taped performance.
The gentle instrumental hears the three musicians explore unconventional melodies and quirky notation with exceptional–and fearlessly experimental–playing on their respective instruments. The song trots along sounding very much like an Avante-Garde jazz piece and carries even more of a unique presentation when played live in this instance thanks to the slightly-erratic filming style from the video’s director Marcella Cytrynowicz.
Watch the new live video below.

As previously reported, the recordings to be featured on Notes With Attachments were tracked at southern California’s Sound City Studios and other locations over the past two-and-a-half years with help from a number of guest musicians. The album was intended to be Palladino’s solo project but evolved into a full-blown collaborative effort between the talented bassist and Mills, whose previous work includes production credits on Alabama Shakes‘ Sound & Color, Dawes‘ We’re All Gonna Die, Jim James‘ Eternally Even, and John Legend‘s Darkness & Light to name a few.
