first_imgDrummer Joe Russo (Joe Russo’s Almost Dead) has released a new album of solo material, phér•bŏney. The album was recorded by Russo at Woodlot Recording in Brooklyn, NY, with additional recording and mixing/mastering by D. James Goodwin at The Isokon in Woodstock, NY.Each of the album’s nine tracks was written and performed by Russo, with several songs also featuring work by Joe’s various regular collaborators. “phér•bŏney love theme” features tenor sax from Erik Lawrence. “Can’t Wink” features Robbie Mangano on baritone guitar and synth bass. “Molly & Anni” features Mangano on electric, acoustic, and baritone guitars as well as Stuart Bogie on tenor sax. “Perfectabilitarians” again features Mangano on electric and acoustic guitar and piano with Jon Shaw also playing electric and upright bass. “The Wow! Signal” features Josh Kaufman on electric guitar and bass and Stuart Bogie on tenor sax. “Waters of March” is the sole song on the album not written by Russo, with music and lyrics credited toAntônio Carlos Jobim.The sonically avant-garde jazz fusion record plays with a litany of ethereal, ambient tones and genre-bending sensibilities—a welcome change of pace for drummer most frequently heard these days playing music from the Grateful Dead‘s rock and roll repertoire with JRAD.You can listen to Joe Russo’s new album, phér•bŏney, below via Spotify or YouTube:Joe Russo – phér•bŏney – Full Album You can also check out a full tracklisting and album cover art designed by Baptiste Ibar below.Joe Russo – phér•bŏney – Album Tracklisting1. phér•bŏney love theme2.

Preventing next year’s tax bill

She is also a storytelling expert and works with credit unions to help … Web: www.financialfeed.com Details If you’ll be receiving a bill from the IRS instead of a big refund, you’re not alone.The Government Accountability Office estimates that about 2 in 10 taxpayers will owe money to the IRS.While it might be too late to do anything about this year’s bill, there are steps you can take now to ensure next year’s tax season treats you better.Adjust W-4 withholding: Review your W-4. Check the withholding calculator on IRS.gov to figure out if you have the right number of personal allowances on your W-4. After the passing of the new Tax Cuts and Jobs Act, the IRS and U.S. Department of the Treasury changed the withholding guidelines employers use to determine how much income tax to deduct from paychecks. The result was an increase in your paycheck. Those who didn’t adjust the personal allowances on their W-4 accordingly, may have had too little income tax taken out of each paycheck. It’s always a good idea to make adjustments when there is a major life event like marriage or having a child.Review your tax filing status: Did you select the best tax filing status? The one that will keep the most money in your account? There are five to choose from: single, head of household, married filing separately, married filing jointly and qualified widow. Your filing status determines your tax rate and deduction eligibility.Do your research: Have you opened accounts that provide tax breaks such as 401(K)s, Individual Retirement Accounts, Health Savings Accounts and 529 accounts, to name a few? Do you know your tax bracket? Don’t be afraid to explore various educational resources to help you make sense of your taxes.last_img read more
