I have been in the studio last week to record the second batch of tunes for my first album with my Quartet (MBQ). It was a great session and I realised how patient and generous you have to be with one another when you record a Jazz album.
When we were recording we were always going for another take and another one because we thought we can do it better and better again. At the end of the day we were all exhausted. Listening back a few days later showed that the first two takes were usually the best ones.
The best thing of all is that the album is finished now. All that is left to do is mixing, mastering and the manufacturing process. The release will be in the second half of 2014. i am really excited about this and very thankful for Darragh’s, Barry’s and Satya’s great work and musicianship. Thanks guys!
