Sound X 9

March 29 2008

I went into the session a bit under the weather with the flu and some seriously aching muscles, but what we came out with was a good dose of medicine. The days jam consisted of Rob Daulphena space bass,
Rich McGhee horns and flutes, Eric Simonsen jamming lead guitar, Bruce Nelson a.k.a pro drummer, Sarah Smith vocals , Pete Onofrio didgeridoo, flutes and vocals and John Ellis on the sound board.

Eric came down again from Albany for his second sound X and was ready to let it loose and he did. The guitar sounds rivaled an upstate NY outside summer concert that had a touch of Government Mule and a dash of Dave Mathews in the cake mix.
But adding the didge and flutes with some Coltrain-esque horns and some Trent Resner bass effects thanks to Pappa Scorpio and the afternoon took on a seriously cool vibe. It was good to shake out the cold and the last of winter with some fun sounds, thanks you guys. This video clip is kind of funny, Pappa Scorpio was tuning my bass guitar which is a left hander. So notice the think is upside down, still sounded great! The camera floats over to John who drove down from West Hartford and was still pulling his chops together for the jam and we catch him in a yawn. Great time either way!
