I'm happy to share that Part One of my recording project, the Trio CD with Misha Tsiganov on piano, Thomson Kneeland on upright bass and yours truly on guitars, arrangements and compositions, is well underway!
My deepest thanks to everyone who donated their personal support and financial contributions so far. As a result, our trio sessions were fueled with inspiration, creativity and pretty relentless concentration. I'm so grateful to Misha and Thomson for their unwavering musicianship, professionalism and personal support. They infused the music with such warmth, excitement and precision, I will be excited to get to share it with you soon!
The next step in the process will be to have the great engineer- David Darlington, edit, mix and digitally master the recording in early May. After that, I will seek out some new photos and artwork for the cover. Then I will research and implement the CD manufacturing (pressing and packaging).
Part 2 of this big recording project is to make a solo guitar CD. To the people who know me predominately as a solo guitarist through You Tube, I've been eager to present all I have invested in my trio concept. For the people who have know me through my years of playing trio on Sundays at the Bar Next Door, and to the friends on You Tube who have asked about a solo disc, I've aspired to produce this solo project. I find solo playing to be the most demanding and intimate, therfore I will absolutely build on all the hard work and growth the trio session insisted on. I have plenty of new solo arrangements to share and will be eager to do so.
With both inspiration and humility, I am continuing to raise funds for the solo project. To record, edit, mix, master, produce artwork and packaging for 2 CDs can easily cost $10K or more! I am happy to have reached an initial goal of over $6K and am aspiring to continue with your ongoing support.
The solo session is scheduled for the end of May at Oktaven Audio in Westchester with another editing, mixing and mastering session to follow in the weeks after. Then I will aspire to repeat the post-production work needed to produce hard copies for CD 2/the solo CD (vs. releasing solely a digital download).
With the help of my friends, colleagues and music lovers, I would be thrilled to see the 2 CDs recorded, mixed, mastered and printed as hard copies!
Notice again, the incentives below, that I've created to inspire your support!
My deepest thanks again for helping me move towards my goal!
All the best!
