April, May and June have brought a ton of fun recording to my studio.
Disney Theatrical returned once again for 2 new recordings of Aladdin… a kids show and a Dual (Spanish and English) language version. Arranger/ Orchestrator/ Composer Bryan Louiselle was in for production duty along with concept creator Ken Cerniglia. Orchestra recording was done here and at the Tracking Room.
Busch Garden’s Gary Lensenmayer came to town to record tracks for a new show at Busch Gardens Williamsburg. A Cirque de Soleil style show, we had a 4 piece rhythm section, 13 strings, 6 brass and 2 woodwinds.
Super-producer Pablo Manavello brought a new pop/rock artist from Italy to track her new project (name to be released). The band consisted of some bad-ass players from Miami… Pablo on guitars, Fernando Perdomo on bass and electric guitar, Derek Cintron on drums. Pat Coil joined us on keyboards to round things out. Very, very cool project; details to follow.
I mixed a song for cuban actor/ singer Alexis Valdez, produced by Jose Miguel Velasquez.
I also wrote and produced 2 remix tracks of Carl Douglas’s 70’s hit “Charmer”. One is a Hip hop/ R&B style track featuring rapper A-J-A. The other is a more straight up House track. Carl is persistent in his quest for a fresh take on some of his classic songs.
Here are some recent highlights
