BakerzMillion Live at Andy's Jazz Club - Remote Recording


The BakerzMillion jazz sextet lead by pianist Steve Million and trombonist Andy Baker, features an all star cast: Victor Garcia, trumpet; Jim Gailloreto, saxophones; Matt Ferguson, bass; Tim Davis, drums. I had the pleasure of mixing and mastering the debut record Mood Point and this past weekend was able to setup a remote multitrack recording at Andy's Jazz Club over the Valentine's Day weekend for their second and live upcoming album. Armed with a mix of vintage Neumann, AKG and Gefell microphones I was able to complete a setup in record time, close to the side of the stage. Although a tremendous amount of setup and work, the atmosphere at Andy's was animated and bustling and lent itself to energized and lively sets of music by BakerzMillion. Live records always have a tremendous energy to them and this one is no exception. This band is in perfect synchronicity and the soloist are all astounding. Stay tuned for more updates regarding this new and anticipated release.
