Dear TB Brothers and Sisters, I'm in the final preparations before what will most likely be the most important recording sessions of my life this weekend. My band, Mystery Feet, is working on our second CD and I have hired drummer extraodinaire Joel Rosenblatt for the sessions. We've got a two day lockout scheduled (actually can two days be considered a "lockout"?...whatever) for this Saturday and Sunday. For those of you who may not be familiar with Joel, his credits include Michel Camilo, Paquito D'Rivera, Peter White, Steve Khan, Bill Evans, Oz Noy and Marion Meadows, just to name a few. Oh yeah, and there was that twelve year stint he just ended with a little band called Spyro Gyra. I'm truly honored he's agreed to work with us, and to say I'm thrilled and excited to work with him would be quite the understatement. If this record don't groove it'll all be on yours truly. Anyway, I thought I would share my excitement and anticipation...okay and a bit of nervousness...with you cats, and kind of let you all in on the process as it unfolds. If anyone has any questions about, well, anything...please don't hesitate to post and I'll reply as best I can. I may even have an opportunity to post a progress report from the studio. I'll certainly be updating on Monday, and I'll share the good, the bad and the ugly...although I have little doubt it'll be all good.
