    Hey guys,

    Here's something that I recorded a few months ago. I wasn't crazy about the sound quality of the recording but I like the energy of the group. I also had to compress it quite a bit so forgive me!

    Anyways, the personnel is Idan Santhaus, tenor; Bruce Harris, trumpet; and the "all Pete" rhythm section: Pete Malinverni, piano; Pete Polinski, drums, and yours truly, bass.

    C & C welcome....

    By the way, I used my Kay with Velvet Animas.

    Nice man!!! It swings hard. Nice solo too. I enjoyed it. Reminded me a little of The Cannonball's Quintet with Sam Jones. He's one of my favorites.

    Pete, I don't know if you have one, but if you do...quit your day job. This stuff is intense.

    Killin. Big sound. Use all the bass and still have the big sound and big groove. Sweet. Nice spot in the groove, right out front ready to fall into tomorrow without ever really doing it.

    I was just in New York for a couple days and every place people were playing live music it was all being played right out in front of time like that. Everyone pushes, even the orchestra for the ballet. I love that. Its the energy of the street. Around here in the land of cows you have to make your own energy. You have to conjure it out of nothing. In New York it seems to seep out of everywhere. From the sewers and the doors and windows and the musicians and the help at the coffee shop. It's everywhere. It's Fantastic.

    Thanks guys! Glad you dig it. BTW Aaron, those are the Velvets (actually with a Spiro E). I did some other work where the recording quality is much better than this and you can really hear how they speak. I'm probably gonna put that on my website and I'll let you know when I do b/c I know you wanted to check them out. It would give you a better idea of how they sound (at least on a Kay).

    Hey Pete,
    I think you should quit your day job too, if you haven't yet. Sounded great w/ Renee Rosnes at the PAC.

    Sounds really good, Pete. That's a darker sound than I usually like, but you play on top enough to make it speak just right. What's your action set like? Seems like every time I've played Velvet strings, they felt kinda flabby unless they were jacked up pretty good...and these don't sound flabby.

    Thanks guys.

    Dylan, you were killin' as usual at the Hilltop last night too, bro. Your bass is sweet.

    Chris, when we made this recording it was the end of the summer and the humidity jacked up my action a little higher than I would have liked. I couldn't get it any lower because the adjusters were all the way down, so I kind of manhandled my bass through that session. But you do have to keep them pretty high in general to get rid of the rubber band sound.

    Ed, **** you too. Just kidding. ;) Renee was the featured guest artist at the Purchase Jazz Orchestra concert. I got to play trio with her and this great drummer Paul Francis. It was a lot of fun. I almost got lost because I was so taken by how beautiful her playing was! I also played with her and a small band the night before at a master class she conducted at the college. She is so damn good.

  18. Hey Pete, this track swings hard!, there's not a helluva lot of bass on my speakers here at work, but I felt it man, definately felt all that stank you put on the solo too, good stuff....it's so true about that NYC energy, the two times I visited the big apple, I remember just being all hopped up, I couldn't sit still! I hope to make it out there again in April, i'll have to check out all you New Yawk boys !

    Cheers
