Update #11

Second full studio session

2 comments

Had a fantastic studio session yesterday with the full trio. We recorded basic piano, bass, and drum tracks for 3 more tunes. It looks like the CD will have 6 tunes, possibly 7 if I decide to include my cover of Neil Young's "Old Man", which I recorded with Steve Boletchek and Bob Jackson last year.

Here's a taste of some of what we laid down yesterday. This is an excerpt from my composition called "Nameless". This is just the raw recording, before John works his studio magic on it.

Thanks again to all of you for making this project possible! This is the most fun I've had making music in, like, forever.
