Imaginary Love Ballads is the brain child of artist Todd Whisler. This is album number 7 that I have produced for Todd. We spent a whole year working on every aspect of the CD and DVD for a dual release. Check out this trailer.
Recently I got the chance to work with Barry Sparks in the studio. For those who do not know Barry, he is one of the world’s top bassists, with a career that includes work with legendary acts like Yngvie Malmsteem, MSG, Ted Nugent, Dokken, Scorpions, and more. I actually used to play in his band for a while and recorded drums for his full-length release Don’t Look Back. Since Barry is touring the world I never get to see him, so it’s always a special treat to be playing alongside him in the studio. The amount of energy and soul that he brings to recordings is like no other. It’s crazy how musical he is – most of the songs he tracked he had only heard a minute or two before, and the takes he laid down are definitely keepers! Check out this video: notice his left hand adds vibrato by bending certain notes and his right hand is blazing – all while sight reading!
This weekend (April 13th) for 2nd Saturdays in Tucson there will be a free show at the Fox Theater where I will be backing up one of my clients that I performed with in the studio. The album is call Tales of the Road and portrays a journey through different countries when you listen to it. Afterward the Domingo DeGrazia Band will play a set also.
Phil Free is an artist that is in the rock genera with a unique vocal sound. I have had the pleasure of performing with him and bassist Joaquin Zamudio to make his latest record. Looking forward to hearing the end product.
I did some drumming, percussion, and engineering on a 3 tracks with Domingo DeGrazia that were included on the new Ted DeGrazia Jazz/Big Band compilation CD entitled Please Remember Me, which is available now through the DeGrazia Gallery gift shop.
There will be an official release party for the DeGrazia Centennial Concert DVD on May 1, 2011, at Tohono Chul Park. Mark your calendars now for this all-ages show, featuring the Domingo DeGrazia Band. The show is set to begin at 8:00pm.
