I thought it would be enjoyable to have a place for posts of my album progress and other interesting insights. I will try to keep them brief and fun to read, but I guess those things are all relative.
So far I have really enjoyed working with Geoff at Big Sky Recording to lay down all of the raw material for my album. I worked with some really great musicians and recording was a blast, although intimidating at times. The idea was to keep the instrumentation relatively simple so I ended up with a jazz trio thing happening: piano, drums, upright bass, and guitar on select tracks. I am now headed for the mixing phase this week and am looking forward to fine tuning each tune. I hope to be posting soon of a successful mixing experience and more on my inspirations for the album.
