Second and final day of recording

Bitter-sweet, we had to say bye for now after this last day of studio with those music heros. Honestly they have been amazing from start to finish on this project and this day was no exception!

I’m so honored to be able to stand with those highly skilled and highly musical jazz-gentlemen.

From left to right, Ike Sturm (bass), Rudy Royston (drums), Michael Bond (piano/rhodes), myself (guitars), Sam Sadigursky (Tenor/Soprano), Enoch Smith Jr. of Misfitme music (production and B3 organ) and Dave Kowalski (sound engineer).

They have magnified each song! We had some nice surprises, especially with an extra piece I composed during the 3 days before this last recording day. A little surprise for someone very special … Promise, you will know more about this piece at the release of the album.

Next some overdubs, then edits and mix mid-July…

First day

Our first day of recording today was just amazing!

Everybody played incredibly, I’m so amazed at how well it turned out, can’t wait to share it with you! And I can’t wait to record the next session in June.

In addition to Rudy Royston, we had Sam Sadigursky on tenor, Ike Sturm on bass, Michael Bond on piano and Vinod Gnanaraj singing the title track.

Here Rudy soloing (he killed it as much on the solo on “For each one of them” today)

 

Slight change of plan

The drummer we planned to have on the recording had been sick for several days, we had to find a cover last minute for tomorrow. And we found one, Rudy Royston is available and can do the session with us tomorrow, this is incredible! Rudy is just the most amazing drummer, I can’t wait to hear how is gonna interpret my music.

STRETCH GOAL REACHED!!!

Incredible! I’m speechless… I mean no, THANK YOU to all the backers, 111 exactly! Really impatient to share with you this music!

WoW! Minimum goal reached!

WOW! We made our minimum goal! And we still have 7 days to go! Awesome, I hope we’ll reach our stretch goal!

I’m so THANKFUL for the help and encouragements of all the backers on my side! It feels like kickstarter owns its name: I feel the kick, a really good one, which is what I need to take the courage to bring this project to complete life.

We’re meeting today with the label founder, Enoch and we’ll book the studio very soon as now the project is really happening. And it’s not too late to jump in! You have until April 14th. Meet you there.

With deep gratitude!
