New Sextet recording project

This weekend I took a three-horn group into the studio to record a demo to send to festivals in Spain for next summer. My partner in crime Pere Soto wrote all the charts and will be adding his guitar tracks at a studio in Barcelona before giving the demo to our manager. The session was on of the most stressful recording that I've ever done. There were a lot of problems with our headphone mixes, time limitations and worst of all Pere had overlooked some problems with the charts.

Here are a couple of tunes from the session for your listening pleasure.......

Bossando Pra Ella
Chick Came Around


The lineup-
David Valdez- alto sax
Dick Titterington- trumpet
John Moak- bone
David Goldblatt- piano
Dan Schulte- bass
Alan Jones- drums

I really like the ending to "Chick Came Around." There's something really funny about it. Is that the part where she actually did come around??

Dave, your solo is great man! Dan Schulte! I played with him when I lived in Portland, him and Jay Collins, great rhythm section you're playing with, I think Alan was in Spain when I was living there (89-91). That 2nd track reminds me of OTB...
