Ocean Of Birds was produced and mixed by Sansone and Josh Shapera (Liam Hayes, The Autumn Defense) with Gar Ragland (Arthur Alligood, Chris Velan) and was recorded at Asheville’s Echo Mountain Recording Studios. Of the album Hatt says, “The amazing [part] about the making of Ocean of Birds is that we all found each other. That Pat Sansone heard and dug our compositions. I think it’s a testament to the power of music to find an audience, if it can be heard. And in the process we all created a unique hybrid that bridges the gap between jazz harmony, literate lyrics and people’s ears. Pat was a big part of that.” Glass adds, “We want to write about a world both intimate and vast, about little people on Great Plains.”
Glass got her start singing Bossa Nova in Montana—as she likes to say, “There’s something poignant about singing Girl from Ipanema when it’s negative forty out.” Hatt grew up in the Chicago area, studying jazz guitar in Indiana University’s David Baker program, Michigan State and in classes led by Pat Metheny, Julian Lage and Lee Ritenour.
