March 2009

Just got back from Chicago – recording a CD for pianist Ryan Cohan. A very nice project which features Lorin Cohen on bass, Kobie Watkins on drums, Geof Bradfield on sax and woodwinds, and Joe Locke on vibes. We recorded at Chicago Recording Company’s studio 4, and it was like stepping back in time 15 years – I used to record at CRC frequently after Universal Recording closed up shop and I was still living and working in Chicago. This is a nice room with good sightlines and flexible iso. Ryan brought a nice Fazioli 7′ piano in for the session.
