Recording D. C. Summer Night
When I had a chance to record an album of my original music with incredible musicians, I jumped at the opportunity. Thus began the D. C. Summer Night recording project.
Fast forward to recording at Bias Studios. Instead of Neumann mics, we used an AKG C24 for vocals and two pressure zone microphones (PZMs) inside the lid of the grand piano. Although twenty four tracks seemed to be far more than we would ever need, I soon realized that they would be well used. First, the rhythm track took several tracks, vocals several more, and additional instruments added many more. When there were multiple “takes” of various sections, there were frequently no unused tracks available.
Most of the music is rock with an edge to it, but there are a few variations. For example, Black Book man has a section that transitions from rock to funky jazz and back to rock. Prisoner of the Highway shifts from a standard 4/4 rock beat to a frenetic 11/8 meter, a strange variation of a waltz, as in 1-2-3 1-2-3 1-2-3 1-2. Playing with Fire Dying to Burn uses a 3/4 beat, and has a classical flair, with a flute and violin. Dancing Girl has a distinctive country/country rock flavor to it. Admittedly, this may not be the standard formula for a rock album.
More information is available in the libretto and lyrics.
Clips of the songs are available on the D. C. Summer Night page. Starting in October, we will feature a song of the month, which will play in its entirety all month. Stay tuned.
