I. I've completed edits and analog tape mix of Marcin Slusarczyk Quintet featuring the music of legendary Polish jazz and film composer and pianist Andrzej Trzaskowski recorded in Wojkowice, Poland at MAQ Records. Super fun and challenging project! Digital CD master awaits.
II. I've edited and mixed to tape my latest CD album project recorded last November during my Sabbatical leave at studio Svarov near Prague along with wonderful musicians David Doruzka (g), Robert Balzar (b), and Marian Sevcik (dr). Last month Geoff Clapp overdubbed percussion on four tracks and I've added organ and keyboard backgrounds via the Roland RD-2000 keyboard. Truly challenging project, but I'm very excited about the way it turned out, so stay tuned for a release date later in 2023 or early 2024.
III. I've finished working on edits and analog mix/master of an acoustic piano/fender rhodes duet sessions I did back between 2008-2009 at my home Beechwood studio along with a wonderful pianist and composer Bill Gerhardt who passed away after a long illness in 2021. Here is an excerpt of Bill's original tune called "Under The Moon" from this project:
