This week has been very inspiring for me. There have been some bummers too. Roy Hargrove passed unexpectedly. I didn’t know Roy, but I loved the way he played and was a big fan of his music. On the other hand, I’ve been unusually busy and have been blessed with an abundance of work. Over in London, I was hired to play on two projects, one with one of the singers from the Drifters, (Under the Boardwalk), and another for a composer of children’s music. I feel like I’m learning too and feel like I’m nine again when I do those kind of projects. I also got a smooth jazz song to play on, so I’m definitely going from one thing to another. I also got to take part in another hard rock piece from a gentleman in Syracuse NY, and this morning, something came in from a producer in Italy that reminds me of U2. It has to be done today. If that wasn’t enough, I got an offer to play a show in St Croix in December. I’ll reveal names and tracks on my website as they come to completion. I feel very fortunate about all of this and just wanted to share. Keep on your path. Dreams do come true.
I wish you all an excellent weekend.
Here's a nice little excerpt from of the newer pieces from @paradigmsync. I rarely solo, but I thought this turned out pretty good, so get your earbuds and enjoy. @ajlsoundwave from NY on guitar and @jcoop.drum from Memphis on the drums. @bartolinipups @tsunamicables @waynejonesaudio @ghsstrings #recording #rhythmsection #session #sessionbassist #basstracks
What was your first 45? Do you even know what I'm talking about?
The Specific Ocean. Pacifically.
Really, I am. #attitude #gratitude
There's such a science to getting a great recorded bass signal that goes far beyond good technique. Having the right equipment helps, but it takes a real good engineer too to bring it to life. Thanks @ajlsoundwave @paradigmsync for doing that. Here's a little sample from one of the tunes. @jcoop.drum playing the drums.@bartolinipups @tsunamicables @ghsstrings
I hope you'll take the time to listen to some new vocal music and video that was just completed by @paradigmsync. I so enjoy cutting tracks with these guys. We have a whole mess of them. Looking forward to hundreds of new tracks in the coming year for sync placement. @ajlsoundwave @jcoop.drum
I had an exorcism today....I'll be ok...
