We had a great session today featuring a talented, young cellist named Raphael Weinroth-Browne. He played beautifully on a piece from my project that’s meant to convey a walk through the jungle. With January’s bitter weather, a jungle sounds pretty good right now!

Today we had the final session of 2016 with local piano player and trombone man, Mark Ferguson. He added some great playing to five tunes on my project. What a talented and nice person to work with!

Rob Milicevic, the drummer for the cool band, Kobo Town, came in last night for our quickest session so far. He did an excellent job on two pieces; one calypso and one reggae-ish tune.

Norm Glaude laid down some beautiful acoustic and electric bass parts on two bossas from my new project.

We have completed the percussion parts for eight pieces. René F. played a nice variety of instruments; udu, timbales, caxixi, guiro, claves, cha-cha bell, maracas, woodblocks and even a pair of sandpaper blocks that my wife reminded me we owned. I can’t believe that I wrote so many percussion parts!

November 19,

Today marks the start of tracking for my new, full-length “Tropical” album, just ahead of our first major snowstorm. We’re recording at Gallery Studios here in Ottawa with Dean Watson. For our first session, “Congaman” René Fortier laid down some great conga and bongo parts. We’re hoping to have our following percussion session late next week. A great start!
