Recorded just weeks before the Covid-19 pandemic shut down New York City and the Bushwick Public House, this album represents the culmination of three years of weekly performances by the 8pm Bushwick Series "house band", and the end of an era. So this recording is both a farewell, a celebration of what was... and a call to action. We'll see you all on the other side! - Stephen Gauci

"FLY or DIE LIVE" is an excellent document of a live set by a dynamic and tight collaborative unit who give voice to both the world we live in and the changes that need to be made in that world. An excellent example of improvisational and spontaneous performance where music and mood are all created in the moment. Branch and the band are all tight, all performing at an inspired level.
A really great album that fully demonstrates the skill and talent of an amazing group of artists. rikm
