the tracks are done!

the tracks are done! we recorded 14 songs in about 3+ days... we did everything LIVE including the vocals and solos, etc. we did NO instrument overdubs at all except for adding some tambourine, here and there.
now, we are cleaning up and editing some things... but all in all "what you see/hear is what you get" ... the band playing as the band!

more session fotos

the BLUES sessions are on! we've been knocking the stuff out and have gotten some great stuff. we've gotten maybe 9 cuts in 4 days time- and are hoping to get about 4 or five more in the next 3 days, then quit - choose maybe 12 tunes-and then begin getting some rough mixes. Michael flies back to Virginia, and will do the mixing and mastering there. i'll be posting some snippets of raw video- on youtube and myspace- from the sessions.

shots from the sessions

we arrived in zurich may 6 and decided [rather than waste a day on jet lag] to begin the set up and the recordings. we've recorded every day this week, except today; but Michael has done some rough mixes and fixes. we begin again tomorrow, and go until may 14th.
these are some shots from set up May 6, 2008 before we began recording...
