Voices in the woods


Another wonderful couple of days at The Playroom, recording piano, voices and brass on ‘Sea and Sky’ and ‘The Cedars’, and comprovising a new brass piece while doing so.

On Wednesday 21st and Thursday 22nd August, I was joined by vocalists Rachel Myer, Annie Lightly and Debby Tyndall, trombonists Mike Hext, Ellen Campbell and Peter Thompson, flugelhornists Raul D’Oliveira and Steve Lawless, trumpeter Martijn van Galen and pianist Tom Phelan in the studio to work on what I thought were the two remaining pieces to be included on the new album.

In addition to singing and playing the written parts beautifully, these wonderful musicians also added many great improvisations to the tracks, including the comprovisation of a new piece.

Our next session will be in a couple of weeks.
