The Fearless Flyers are back with another new song, “The Baal Shem Tov”, from their upcoming second record, The Fearless Flyers II. The track is the second to be released, following “Flyers Direct“, and features Joey Dosik on sax.
The new-ish Vulf Records project—which is produced and mixed by the “Vulfmon” himself, Jack Stratton (bandleader/multi-instrumentalist of Vulfpeck)—features bassist Joe Dart, guitarist Cory Wong, drummer Nate Smith, and Snarky Puppy guitarist Mark Lettieri.
As they did on their 2018 debut record, The Fearless Flyers II appears to include spinoffs of original Vulfpeck compositions, including “Daddy, He Got A Cessna” (a play on “Daddy, He Got A Tesla”) and “Hero Town” (a song that originally appeared on 2017’s Mr. Finish Line). The six-track record also features two special guest collaborations with mandolinist/vocalist Chris Thile (Live From Here).
The band has only performed together live once, at Concord Music Hall in Chicago, IL last fall during North Coast Music Festival. The set featured special guests including Jamiroquai singer Jay Kay and fellow Vulf collaborators Antwaun Stanley and Theo Katzman. The group has their second scheduled performance coming up at Madison Square Garden in New York City opening for Vulfpeck on Saturday, September 28th.
