Enjoy two more rough-mixes from the Brian Kelly contemporary jazz album project: “Monkey Stone” (Brian Kelly – piano, keyboards, percussion; Evan Francis – flute; Ben Mawhorter – tablas, djembe) and
“Liquid Embers” (Brian Kelly – keyboards, percussion; Eric Crystal – soprano sax).
Production of my next contemporary jazz album is moving ahead. I’m excited to continue recording sessions this month with sax player Eric Crystal (Boz Scaggs, Vijay Iyer…) and next month with trumpet player Mike Olmos (Etta James, Pete Escovedo…). I’ve shared music from this project on my Sneak Preview page over the last several months. Stay tuned!
Later this year Brian Kelly will complete the production of his next album and will once again utilize the expert services of mastering engineer Michael Romanowski (he mastered Brian’s first two albums.) Those of you interested in the audio production process might be interested in seeing this interview with Michael.
This spring I hope finally to record the Tomorrow’s Daydream album on a real grand piano – in all likelihood, a Fazioli F278. I’m also working on two more songbooks… a revised edition of my “Pools Of Light” songbook (currently available only as a pdf file) will be published as a printed, coil-bound songbook. Also in the works is a printed songbook of twelve new solo piano pieces.
