We made some dodgy demos a couple of nights ago (any recording of which I am engineer/producer is by definition dodgy). Here's one in which I have a little solo:

I like it! Good band. I get a JT Brown (Elmore James ... saxman) when I listen to your solo.

I get a JT Brown (Elmore James ... saxman) feeling, impression .... when I listen to your solo. To think in Swedish and write in English is not easy for me. And then you must be quick as well!! Internet is not for an old growing man like me. What's wrong with paper, pencil, envelope, stamps, mailman, mailbox .... . I joned the slow movement the other year. Slow food, slow city .... and now perhaps slow communication

You are doing much better than me when I try to write to my relatives in Polish!

It's a strange thing, developing a personal stlye, and maybe more so for me, because although I'm about to turn fifty-seven years old, I'm only six and half years old as a sax player and have spent most of my musical life dealing with rather different styles of music.

The nice thing about the RnB/rock thing is that there is audience for it who will get up and dance, and so repay you for your efforts as a performer with a rather more visceral response than you get from playing in a "classical" performance. I suppose the people I have been consciously listening to for style are people like Lee Allan and King Curtis. Of course I'd play jazz if I could, but I think I've left it a bit late in life to ever develop the necessary chops.

I often find jazz boring and predictable. I tried to join my friends in differnt jazzband in the 70's. Nothing for me. After some years with "Fly Me To The Moon", "Moonlight Serenade", "Mood Indigo", "My Funny Valentine" ... I decided to say farewelll to my friends. No more charts, reading, note stands, black turtleneck sweaters .... . And there was one guy who thouhgt that Clarence Clemons was no good!!!!!! I went back to Rock 'n' Roll, Blues and R&B. In fact I never left Rocksax!!

More Terrazzo Brothers and T-bone Shuffle!!

Keep Honkin' and Rock On!

Stefan was that recorded live or is it studio work? Either way, it sounds great!
Somewhere between!

It was a quick and dirty job because the singer was about to leave for your part of the world for three months. So it's everyone playing in the same room at once, monitoring the singer off speakers (not ideal). I only had eight inputs on the computer, so I miked the singer (then took a line out from the PA), the two guitar cabinets and the two horns, took a line out from the bass amp, and just used a kick mic and overhead on the drums.

There's not a lot of production - I just balanced things, put some reverb on vocals and horns, and then compressed the whole mix a bit. On "T-Bone Shuffle" I also boosted up the guitar solos, which were originally a bit on the quiet side.
