August 25th, 2011String Therory Recording J-19
That has been a real thriller for me to get this project together, with the last minute cancellation of Bennett Studios, I had to find a new studio to record the album.
System 2 studios in Brooklyn is now the studio that I am going to use! wich is a really good studio!
But the good news is that I am still working with a great team, Rob Mosher as the artistic director; Dave Darlington, Grammy Award Winner Engineer (worked with Herbie Hancock; Ambrose Akinmusire or George Benson) will take care of the mixing and mastering. System 2 studios has been really reliable and found a spot for me right away and the recording has been scheduled the sept 12th and sept 13th.
Jesse Elder - piano
Massimo Biolcati - bass
Arthur Vint - drums
Doug Bradford - guitar
Scott Tixier - violin
Guest vocalist - Emilie Weibel
Thanks for your support
