Dragonfly Taxi recording back in the swing
It’s been a great summer and with the free time and nice vibe I’ve re-ignited my Dragonfly Taxi recording project. I’ve got 9 new tunes, mostly reggae, but with a couple of rock/rap numbers. I was fortunate enough to rally my friends, colleagues (and favorite reggae/groove playa’s in the area!) Winston Maccow (bass) and Sean Skeete (drums) to come to my studio for a long day of laying down the foundation grooves for the tunes. (That’s them in the pic.) We kicked ass and NAILED all 9 tunes in about 8 hours! Now I’m on an inspired roll building all the rest of the parts including plenty of guitar, horn, vocal, percussion and keyboard parts. A couple of days ago my bredren Maroghini came in and recorded some FINE nayabinghi (drum) parts and in a couple of days Thaddeus Hogarth is coming in to lay down the guitar parts. It’s gonna be a while before it’s all done but look out because in 2012 I’m going to be making up for lost time in terms of releasing new material as not only will this recording be released but the Rebel Tumbao recording will launch as well.
