(back to DISCOGRAPHY)



WITNESS was recorded live at the beautiful-sounding Columbia City Theater in Seattle in June of 2017 as a part of the SeaProg Festival. It is enormously gratifying, after over ten years of performing as a band, to finally have a high-quality rendering of the live JOTC. It is a different animal from our studio offerings--different feel, different energy, often radically different arrangements. We put a ton of work into this show in particular--the last time the original quintet of Damon Waitkus, Emily Packard, Kate McLoughlin, Jason Hoopes, and Jordan Glenn performed together--re-imagining material from our entire tenure together and weaving it into a continuous, stand-alone set.


Thanks to Dennis Rea, John Reagan, Jon Davis, and the Columbia City Theater for making this happen.


Recording engineer: Maurice Jones Jr.


Mixed and mastered by Damon Waitkus.


For Jesse, who was with us then, and listening.
