New Recordings

The recording of Ode to William and Sally, The Wordsmith and Flowers in a Basket is coming along very nicely. I'm really impressed with the combined vocal sounds of the Vanguard. It seems that we have just the right singers with just the right natural pitch for the task; giving us a lush and at times, intensity, helping to create the mood. Bo has performed some beautiful piano sounds on these recordings. We've been experimenting with drums on 'The Wordsmith' but haven't hit the spot yet.
Every project has its obstacles and this is no different. The string players I had lined up for recording sessions have completely pulled out. So, I am in need of some quality string players for this job. I need a cellist and two violinists. In the meantime, I will continue to lay down the basis of another three tracks and we'll record all of the parts that we can.
News just to hand is; we are about to launch into our next documentary. More on that later!
