The home sessions have been keeping me alive this year and I am very grateful for the calls, and for my friend Gordon Rustvold for helping me with ProTools answers when needed and for keeping the system running clean.
This horn section I recorded all saxes - 2 Alto - 2 Tenor 1 Bari saxophone. Dean will likely add trumpet to give it a horn section feel and not a sax section feel. Dean has a few trumpet guys he is using on this project and recording has been great for this CD!
My input is arranging, working with the writer to get horn parts he loves and recording saxophones here at my home studio and then sending files to drop into his session.
Recording Saxophone works great from home since I can work out really great parts, out of the expensive studio, and then track at home as the expense is low, and the end product ends up sounding great.
I will be posting all about the new Dean Grech CD once it is available and we are near the end of the project now so it should be pretty soon!
Exciting stuff is coming! Remember a few posts back that I have a new Blues Band that is in the studio too! I love recording my saxophones almost as much as I love playing them live, in concert!
