Yup! Today we recorded the rhythm section: drums, bass and keyboard. What amazing musicians!!! This process of recording is just fascinating. While I’d thought I’d heard the music in my head, the music took turns and twists I didn’t expect – and that I DO love. And watching the process of musical negotiation between the three of them, with me and Steve Rachid… well, just fascinating!!!
Steve will be getting me mp3s of the recording tonight… both with my uke and vocals and without, so I can hear what we’ve done and practice with the rhythm section.
Next: the amazing violin and clarinet of the Maxwell Street Klezmer Band will lay down their sweetness and joy throughout, laying this musical painting with rich, vibrant colors!!!
