New Record Production Vlog #10: Bangin' Out The BPMs

... as in "beats-per-minute"--the nemesis of solo acts (or THIS solo act anyway). You can almost see the smoke coming out this confused singer-songwriter's head while building a Reason "Redrum" track to regulate the tempo for the studio-version of "Wiseblood."

Michael White Quintet

In Sync With The Universe

Yesterday Michael & Leisei were chilling out at "Barnes and Noble" in the Americana for coffee where they have a beautiful third floor balcony. We were looking out at the fountains, the lawns surrounded by trees, children laughing and playing, old JAZZ playing through many many speakers, birds flying over hopping and pecking crumbs. "Peace in Chaos" : ) so to speak with sun shinning blissfully.

On the way out, we were coming down an escalator, got to go through book shelves to get to another. Then all of a sudden, we smelled good fragrances and STOPPED, PAUSED, LOOKED around . . . Ahhhh it's the music section Ahhhh the Jazz section.

ZOOM! TWO JAZZ books on the shelve came to Leisei's eyes, we found out that Michael was featured in those books : )

John Coltrane : His Life And Music By Lewis Porter

It was on Page 367 " - 1962 - May 1-20. San Francisco. Jazz Work. DB, July 5 says Dolphy, Wes Montgomery and violinist Michael White sat in during the last day, when there was a matinee and possibly a final evening show as well."

Michael never mentioned it till 6 years ago, his brother Teddy reminded him to make sure we should add it (playing with John Coltrane) onto our press kit. Yes Michael has been and still is the man looking ahead hardily ever looking back, busy improving his music, playing and dreaming. But in recent years we have looked into all of his musical history. Also with modern technologies, we have found quite a bit of written proof. And nowadays he is more willing to share his stories with the public!

coverartFreedom, Rhythm, & Sound - Revolutionary Jazz Cover Art 1965 to 1983 By Gilles Peterson & Stuart Baker.

FreedomRhythm&SoundRevolutionaryJazz1963-82A beautiful hard cover weighs tons : ) with an incredible collection of revolutionary jazz album cover art from 60s & 70s! It featured the cover art Michael's Impulse Album "Pneuma", and "The Blessing Song" was also featured on their accompanied two set compilation CDs "Freedom Rhythm & Sound Revolutionary Jazz In The USA 1965-80" from Soul Jazz Records 2009. We were happy to see that many of our friends and Jazz masters were also featured Cecil McBeeSun Ra, Pharoah Sanders, Phil Ranelin, Prince Lasha among others.

When we are in the ZONE, our senses will over-ride any pre-conceived notions & knowledges, and we flow with least resistance. Then we know we are in TUNE, in SYNC with the UNIVERSE * . * * . * Receiving through and sending out. We love those moments!

With LOVE, Leisei & Michael

Dave Magario

In the Stew, Dio.

It's far too early. But here I am. Awake even before I usually get up for my day job. Why? Because I'm recording a dang album. That's why. Really, I just want to sleep. But that's because i am not a morning person. So disregard my grumpy tone.

After a lot of back and forth, I finally settled on working at my friend Zack Ciras's place. He's got an amazing set up with everything I need to make this album as cleanly and quickly as I can. Instruments, gorgeous mics, and a digital studio-in-a-mixer monster that I'm still learning to use. So far I've been doing most of the work on my own. Lots of standing up, walking, press stop, walk back, sit, play, screw up, repeat. Tedious, but it keeps me focused on getting it right the first time. ...or the twelfth time.
Here's the first photo of the sessions, thumb & all. I was getting set up to record demo takes of a mountain of songs. I think I ended up recording 19 songs in one afternoon and a few more the next day. Then I decided what songs to focus on so my time is better spent in the studio. Time is my biggest restriction. That means perfection isn't necessarily the goal. Great albums don't have to be technically perfect.

I'm one week into the process. It started slow but I've begun recording the acoustic guitar tracks. I'm going to go by instrument, recording every song, then moving onto the next instrument. Today I'm aiming to finish up the guitar. From there, I'll figure out what to work through next. This photo is the mic set up Zack arranged for the guitars. 4 mics for the win. It sounds amazing and it's going to come in handy in the mixing.

I've got 14 songs I'm focusing on. I decided to cut down the number of songs. This being my first actual studio record, there's going to be a lot of new listeners; people who've never heard me before. There's no sense in boring them with an 80 minute monster. Today's ADD-inspired music-lover doesn't generally listen to a whole album anyway, so why put two album's worth of work into something they'd only get through a third of? I know. I know. Not everyone is like that. I'm a whole-album guy. If I want to hear an artist, I pick an album, not a song, and I listen to it beginning to end.

So anyhow, if I can get through these 14 quick enough, I'll hopefully be able to come back to a few others I had in mind and have them prepared for some other special release or maybe even the follow up. I have so much material I want to record, there's no sense in letting it go to waste. ... ...That's enough for today. I'll be back soon with another update on the awesomeness that is this new album. It's gonna be Hyooj!

Translucent Blues: Released & I Tunes LP Features!

NEW CD FROM RAY MANZAREK AND
ROY ROGERS RELASED

Ray Manzarek, co-founder and keyboardist of The Doors and member of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Roy Rogers, world renowned slide guitar master and Grammy winning producer, have collaborated on a new CD entitled Translucent Blues. Go get yours with an exlusive artist offer at www.manzarek-rogersband.com - orders will filled after the holiday week-end, as we are on the road finishing the Eastern tour - so thanks for your patience!!

These virtuosos have combined their artistry to produce a release that skillfully weaves rock, blues, and a tinge of jazz into an innovative tapestry. Brimming with soul, intensity and creative energy, Translucent Blues was inspired by the writings of poets such as Jim Carroll, Warren Zevon and beat Michael McClure.  This compelling album features songs with multi-layered arrangements, stylistic depth, and solid driving grooves. 


Ray Manzarek said of the album, "This is a head-first dive into American contemporary Blues.  Roy and I take the unique art form of the Blues and add a 21st century twist to the genre.  We are working with a group of great American poets: Michael McClure, famed beat and close friend of Jack Kerouac and Allen Ginsburg; Jim Carroll of 'The Basketball Diaries' fame; Warren Zevon - the 'Werewolf of London' himself; and Michael C. Ford, noted L.A. jazz poet and good friend of Jim Morrison's.   Their lyrics are superb, succinct, now, and salient.  What Roy and I have weaved around their words are songs that are not standard 12 bar, but do, in fact, live and breathe in the dark, underground world... of the Blues!  'Translucent Blues'"  

Roy Rogers added, "This collaboration with Ray was a joy from start to finish.  We found inspiration not only from the music and lyrics, but most of all from each other--to create a great sound.  To me, the blues is as complex a music as it gets--either you feel it or you don't.  But when you add the spice of some of these lyrics, it definitely takes you on a different route.  Take a ride with us."

At the Blind Pig website you will also find a free download of "Blues In My Shoes," a track from the new release.  On the Ray/Roy website www.manzarek-rogersband.comyou will find an exlusive offer from the artists - and on the ITUNES website you will find a full LP Feature.

Ashley MacIsaac

New CD servicing to media and radio now

ASHLEY MACISAAC IS BACK WITH NEW ALBUM “CROSSOVER”

On June 14th 2011 Ashley MacIsaac will release Crossover, an album that is Ashley at his best. Being the result of over 3 years, 6 different studios, countless international concerts and the combined efforts of Ashley and musical friends such as Quinn Bachand and Mary Jane Lamond, Crossover is Ashley’s first album of this style in ten years!
 
All of these elements have led to this fun album with Celtic crossovers such as the beautiful “She’s A Rare One”, sung by Mary Jane Lamond. “I begged Mary Jane to sing my favorite old Gaelic song,” MacIsaac recalls, “finally she did and it was worth all the begging! Mary Jane Lamond is indeed a rare one.” There is also the bittersweet ballad “White Velvet”, the lyrics of which MacIsaac credits as an inspiration for the entire album is coupled with music influenced by his Catholic upbringing. Of course we can also expect electrifying, fast paced Power Rock Fiddle songs like Poka Rokin. “This was my dad's favorite Cape Breton step dance tune which I kicked up one powerful notch!”   
 
Throughout the recording period Ashley had decided that he wanted to follow up in the same vein as his first major hit record Hi How are you Today?. And while having made 7 more albums and ventured into many different genres since then, the album manages to echo his first big hit while also containing different styles which span the range of influences and musical textures that Ashley has discovered throughout his life.
 
I’m just a Cape Bretoner making my music and speaking from my soul for all the world to hear.”  Already considered something of a local legend and prodigy by the time of his impressive 1992 debut Close To The Floor, Ashley really broke through in to the mainstream with 1995’s double-platinum genre-bending Hi, How Are You Today?. International radio play and a regular slot on MuchMusic made Ashley an instant Canadian icon.

Recent highlights in Ashley’s career include a feature performance in the opening ceremonies at the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics and tours with the likes of Philip Glass and The Chieftains.  He has played on the Conan O’Brian show and Carnegie Hall and performed with the White Stripes for their Under Great White Northern Lights Canadian tour which was turned in to a documentary.

Roy Rogers

Critics' picks for Philadelphia-area performances

Ray Manzarek & Roy Rogers Band: You can't close the Doors of perception or take the blues-rockin', ominous hipster ways away from Manzarek. The keyboardist and songwriter for the psychedelic supergroup has kept stirring the pot in songwriting collaborations with neuvo-beat poets like Jim Carroll and Michael McClure. Now he's aligned his vamping piano and ominous growl with seasoned slide/blues guitarist Rogers, for a jamming new album called "Translucent Blues," out Tuesday, and a tour bringing them hither with Steve Evans on bass, and Kevin Hayes on drums. Yeah, they'll do Doors tunes, too.

Saturday Sidebar - On The Other Hand

Saturday Sidebar – On The Other Hand

 

I take it you didn’t make the final cut for the rapture either then? In which case I guess we shall all just keep on keeping on. 

 

Here at the new northern Inky HQ, I’ve been road testing some new software this week with the venerable Venom Carter. Having all but exhausted the possibilities with the sounds of yore, we’ve decided to sell on a few bits and bobs and replace them with smaller boxes. Only time will tell what musical monstrosities come out of such an escapade of course, but let us at least hope that they are a fitting continuation of, ahem, our journey so far. No doubt there will be some 80s hair metal guitar in there somewhere ;)

 

In light of the never-ending housekeeping exercise, the downloads have been shifted over to the bandcamp site (just click on the Download Here! header above and it’ll take you straight there). You’ll find the entire catalogue from 2010, all downloadable on a pay what you want basis and yes, you can pay absolutely nothing if you wish. All the individual tracks released after Probability & Proximity have been collated together in an album called On The Other Hand. Also included are some previously released alternative mixes and some songs you may not have heard before, like Boxes, Bygones and Regardless. As always, you can download any track individually. 

 

In unrelated news, the Keiser Report this week was hysterical. For the uninitiated, Max Keiser and Stacy Herbert dissect the absolute crock that our financial system is on a bi-weekly basis. It’s not for everyone that’s for sure, but for those of you intrigued as to why your pay packet just doesn’t go as far as you think it should, or why our technological advances don’t seem to be making much headway making life better for all of us, it’s as good a place as any to start. He sure has a way with balloons ;)

The Despoilers

O'Neill's: Recalling the Gig

We enjoyed ourselves at O'Neill's last night. The place had a real party atmosphere. A couple of friends took a lot of photographs, which we would like to get copies of for this site and our facebook page: www.facebook.com/thedespoilers. 

After gig curry was acceptable, which coupled with the evenings band lubrication, helped us to record a negative return on the evening. A bit like the Blues Brothers movie. We didn't however get chased all around Yorkshire by the "Good Old Boys". Nor any good old girls either.

We are back at O'Neiil's on 18th June.

Looking forward to it!
