Finally after some tuff physical recovery, I’m starting to practice again and will be taking lesson from Mark Hummel and others to improve my technique on the harmonica.
My Recording studio is almost completed, This will be a project studio to produce my music and other artist I want to collaborate with. No longer open to the public.
I am working on two new albums. I play in many different genres. And I work with many different bands.
So I decided to produce or co-produce these projects with new or original arrangements of tracks I like.
This includes the Brooklyners, two different blues projects, one with brother Dave, electric blues and jump swing. The other with Michaela Gomez and david langlois, prewar blues.
I’m also working on some electronic and worldbeat tracks.
Nikki Armstrong is collaborating with me on lyrics.
I’m working with Bob Stander and Crag Randel to notable producers.
I’m also remixing two tracks, one is “the boat goes to the bottom” by zap mama and also a track by Afrika Bambaataa.
I’m collaborating with so many musicians that it would be silly to list them here for now.
But I’m looking forward to getting these done in a timely manner, the right way!
I’m working with Nikki Armstrong co writing for her up coming album. We’re also working on a track called “We Declare Peace”!
I’m also working with Sarah Herliani Saputri from Indonesia and her partner on some cool fusion of Downtempo and some of their countries’s indigenous music.
I plan on producing my first full length album this year too. This will focus on my harmonica and feature different groups that demonstrate the different genre and sound I’ve created the music.
Along with the new music written for these projects, I’ve invested in custom harmonicas from Blue moon harmonicas Custom Marine Band 1896, Corian Comb, Set up for Overblows and Overdraws, “Blues Tuning” and Custom Suzuki Manji, Corian Comb, Set up for Overblows and Overdraws, “Jazz Tuning” and Sydel harmonicas costumed by Greg Jones. And costuming two amplifiers and vintages microphones.
