My friend George Brooks introduced me to Brazilian drummer Celso Alberti who added some hot drum tracks to Maui Breeze and Together. Celso really hit this one outa the park and it’s blending nicely with the organic percussion tracks already performed by Jeff Haynes. Lots of fun in store for us during the mix.
We recorded this with sound engineer Stephen Hart at The Mix Room. It’s one of the last session taking place there at Stephen’s studio, which was purchased by Grateful Dead guitarist Bob Weir. Bob is turning the place into a mega audio, video, digital content production facility.
Thanks to musician, producer, and engineer Todd Tate for helping with my interview.
