DAY 2 - The Horns After the hugely successful Rhythm section session, we followed it up a week
later (July 1) with a session to record the horns and some tenor sax. Once again we
got there bright and early, and started warming up. The only problem was that we forgot
the sheet music. Sheet music? We don't need no stinking sheet music! After a quick 45 minute round trip to get the music, Jonty points out a nuance in the
score, and PJ realizes he forgot his trumpet. Being health conscious, Frank decides that what this band needs today is burritos. He brings 6 hours worth of breakfast burritos. Once again, the Symons (Symonses?) were at the helm. Notice Heather at work with her mad mouse
skillz, and the one button that we let Andy push. And Frank's still eating burritos. For this session we lined up all of the brass in the big room for that phat brassy sound. We isolated Lincoln in the drum booth because of the smell. Smitty contemplates the gruelling day ahead. Hauskind warms up his trombone. Frank and Scott lent their critical ears to the procedings. Pete and I went on the grain run (bread and beer). Everybody was playing great. These guys are really good. PJ and Jonty relaxing after a great session. Of the 25 song we had the Rhythm tracks for, we laid horns on 23.
