The past two days, March 13 and 14, George and I wrapped up the mixing and editing for the album. On Monday, March 13, George and I spent the day with engineer Brian Schwab getting the basic mix together and editing four tracks. It was a special day working with George in the studio. He has a very particular sense of how he wants the album to sound. He spoke about his days with Groove Holmes and how Groove had to have a particular mix between the left hand (bass) of the organ and the bass drum for his albums. It was fascinating listening to George talk about all the organ greats he worked with and how they thought about sound as an integral part of what makes a groove. (The ethnomusicologist in me definitely made an appearance during this session.) The performances David Zuchowski recorded have a really high energy. Pete Benson played some fiery solos and really locks in with Bernard who keeps blowing us away with his groove, accompaniment, and solos.
