Before she left, Nan managed to lay down a sweet drum track for the new Jon DeRosa/ LD Beghtol album. Jon also managed to lay down a little bass and a nice classical guitar part. Looking forward to next week's cello session.
Yesterday we put the finishing touches on the mastering for the new Jesse Wakeman album.

Tonight the Wowz are slated to master their latest full length album. It's been a little more than a year in the making, on and off, but I'm very excited about the direciton of this one. All the tracking was performed live and in one room. This proposed a number of unique challenges but in the end I think it gives the album a very distinct vibe.

Rumor has it that Major Matt Mason is working on some new stuff at OJ for the month of April. Stay tuned!
