Recently, Producer Iker Gastaminza came in from Miami with two of the founding members of Venezuelan pop sensation Voz Vies. Santiago and Luis Castillo are finishing production of their first release under the new group name San Luis. Part of the new sound they were looking for was the synergy of great musicians tracking live, something done less and less often in latin pop music. Toward this end Iker suggested coming to Nashville to work with myself and arranger Chris McDonald.
Chris and I assembled an amazing group pf players for the gig: John Hobbs, piano, Tony Morra, drums, Jerry McPherson, guitar, Mark Hill, bass and Mike Daly on pedal steel.
Later that day we overdubs brass on a song and then a 15 piece string section on two other cuts. All in all, a fun and musical day.
