Thanks to John Schaefer for welcoming Directors and System Dialing to the WNYC New Sounds Roundup to share our new video, now on Youtube!

HBO’s High Maintenance placement for Pop It!

Our favorite NYC based show now has the strains of SDR lurking in one of it’s scenes!

Season 2 Episode 9 (the continuous dancing episode) features System Dialing artist Sahr Ngaujah in a scene where the music behind the action also features Sahr! A perfect reason to check out “Justine” from “Drum For Your Life”!

New Vocabuary lawsuit dismissed with prejudice.

For those of you following our story over the years, you likely know about our album New Vocabulary. We are enormously pleased and gratified to be able to share with you news of the recent decision granting our motion to dismiss with prejudice the federal lawsuit brought by Ornette Coleman’s guardian regarding New Vocabulary.

Whether you are familiar with the music (and we hope you have listened to the record multiple times!) or just the talk around it, we encourage you to check out this piece from renowned Jazz historian (editor of The New Grove Dictionary of Jazz) Barry Kernfeld.
