Ben Siems and his jazz group, The Willie August Project, recently invited an audience into a recording studio to watch the making of the group’s new record. In the final part of our Home Cooking series of musicians recording in alternative spaces, 3-Minute Egg spoke with the band’s founders about its style of jazz and its location of choice for the new disc.

CORRECTIONS: Siems is pronounced SEEMS, and audience members are receiving CDs from the concert when the album presses. These are corrections to errors in the introduction of this video.
