Recess Monkey to Release Desert Island Disc

CDFamily music group, Recess Monkey, has recorded its 10th studio CD, Desert Island Disc, set for release in October. The new album features acoustic instruments conveying the relaxed, sun-drenched pace of good friends exploring a strange new land together. Graced with elegant and colorful orchestrations by Jherek Bischoff, Desert Island Disc is like the calm exhale following a rampaging storm of summer excitement.

Guest artists on Desert Island Disc include Justin Lansing of the Grammy-winning Okee Dokee Brothers (banjo), Dean Jones of Dog on Fleas (vocals), and Johnny Bregar (B3 organ). The album was recorded on an island—Bainbridge Island, Wash.—in Johnny Bregar’s Brickyard Studios.
