Giuseppe Logan project surpasses target on Kickstarter

A couple of weeks ago we noted a Giuseppe Logan Kickstarter project, which aimed to raise $6,000 to fund the release of a recording made by Ed Pettersen, of Logan playing with Cooper Moore and Larry Roland last year. The project has now been funded, and is currently over target by more than $5,000, with two weeks to go.

The album is due to be released in August, and the only way to buy one is to fund the Kickstarter (or pick one up from Logan in Tompkins Square Park). The album will be pressed in a run of 500 vinyl, and on CD. The extra money raised will also pay for the repair and upkeep of Logan's instrument.
