Recording Horns @ Audio Dallas

Had a great day today cutting some horns at Audio Dallas! My good friend and client Charles Collins needed some alto and tenor sax, bone, and trumpet on a tune today, so I got to arrange and cut horns on “People Make The World Go Round” a revised version of the classic hit for Charles’ new upcoming EP.

The song itself is pretty hairy. Lots of meter changes, and the horns play a very important role in the recording. Alto sax took the lead, and then tenor sax, bone and trumpet filled out the vibe. Thankfully I had Randy Lee on sax (whom I’d never worked with before – amazing player) Gaika James on trombone and Keith Jourdan on trumpet. I’ve worked with Gaika and Keith several times before and they’re really solid players; some of my favorite to work with in town. Being a horn player myself (I started on trombone) I’m pretty particular when I’m cutting horns. Although Charles is producing the EP himself, he’ll let me chime in when I hear something weird, not that I had to that often.

So very excited to announce I’ve just completed a fantastic new recording with #1 Billboard artist, Vandell Andrew!! He’s a transport from Louisiana to Dallas, and is a completely sick, disgusting (read: amazing, incredible) saxophonist who I’ve worked with and produced before. I really wanted to do something different this time around with him, though. Instead of sticking to the normal smooth jazz flavor he’s best known for, I pushed him to get a bit more outside of the box, and the result is this track – “Keep Going.” It’s like a lounge/house/chill vibe (very Café Del Mar vibe) mixed with a smooth jazz saxophone caramel on top. Slightly pop flavored, but still produced in a very lounge-y way. He did all of his recording the first day, and a lot of it is on the very first take! Please check it out now, and tell me what you think. It’s a great vibe, and something I’m proud to have done with him! Enjoy!

Vandell Andrew Live

So much fun tonight. So. Much. Fun. I got to play with Vandell Andrew, one of my favorite saxophonists here in Dallas. He and I are currently working on a brand new single you’ll hear soon. It a super stinky mix of my dance style production and his silky jazz playin style. Dope. 

As we were working on the production he asked if I was available to play some dates with him. I jumped at the chance to play with him as I love his music, and I don’t get to play enough soul jazz. I mean, really – can there ever be enough of that to play on? 🙂

His band is rock solid, and was a blast to play with. We tore it up and left nothing on the stage at the City Tavern in downtown Dallas. Thanks to all that came out – it was a packed show!! See you next time, friends!
