Spent Sunday at Woolly Mammoth studio working on the new Bob Bradshaw record. It was smooth sailing with Bob, Ed Lucie (bass), Mike Connors (drums) and Dave Westner at the controls. This record will be outstanding!
Neil Young feedback largess…. to cool Ry Cooder slide… to acoustic Mexican ballads… to Ribot-style “prosthetic” Latin…. to high-lonesome whistling. We covered it all.
What a tremendous and inspiring night of new/improvised music at the Midway Cafe last night! Eric Hofbauer’s Radio Waves, Andrew Stern Trio, and the Dan Rosenthal quintet. A great hang with some of my favorite friends and musicians. This is the scene!
Tracked the basics for new Beat Circus record at Q Division. Definitely the most ambitious, wide-ranging recording project to date. Kudos to Brian Carpenter for bringing it together and extra special thanks to Rafi Sofer for making it easy and sound incredible. It sure was a pleasure making music with Paul Dilley and Gavin McCarthy again. There’s more to do but this record is off to a hell of a start. Stay tuned…
