Amazing week in the studio with Albert Castiglia and his band, recording his new album. Holy smokes, this thing is burning! Best stuff I've heard from Albert...his vocals are supremely soulful, his guitar playing is raw, powerful and tasteful, and the songs were perfect to mold around his talents. Matt Schuler and Bob Amsel played their asses off too, as did a couple of special guests. It was a great time..if we weren't recording, we were laughing, and that stuff goes a long way to make a session stay relaxed and productive. Finishing up tracking early next week, psyched to be involved with this one!
UPDATE (11/1/13): The album is complete and going out to mastering in the next couple of weeks. And congratulations to Albert for winning the Blues Blast Music Award for Best Blues Rock Album of 2013!

I had an amazing couple of days in the studio this week working on Jeremy Baum's new album. Jeremy tracked on his newly rebuilt Hammond B3, which sounded absolutely incredible. He'll be back in a few days to track more on the B3, as well as on my newly acquired Yamaha grand piano, and my Wurlitzer 200A. These sessions had some fantastic musicians with some serious credentials: Juma Sultan (percussionist for Jimi Hendrix), Eric Kalb (drummer for Charlie Hunter, the Dap-Kings, etc), Chris Vitarello (guitarist for Jimmy McGriff, Bruce Katz, etc), Scott Sharrard (guitarist for Gregg Allman), Tony Tino (bass player for Gavin Degraw, Ronnie Spector, etc), Myles Mancuso and Chris Reddan (drummer for Popa Chubby, Lance Lopez, etc). More sessions coming up with even more special guests!
