This is one of the most satisfying projects I've completed in a long time. I feel that this
is truly a Jabon classic which ranks up there with As Fess from 1987. This tape is a collection
of different musical styles and really hits home the left right concept of album production. The
left right concept is simply to grab hold of the listener and get their attention, then give them
a right hook, then a left hook, then an upper cut, maybe a stick in the eye. Anything to surprise
and make the recording a interesting listen. Taking one by surprise and stretching most people
musical boundaries is what I strive for. This tape has it. Everything from Gamelan to Metal
to Improv to Experimental, it's a roller coaster ride.
The most satifying element of this session was writing 12-25-95 on the reel master.
When I lived in LA, my friend Marty worked for Hollywood Sound Recorders. They were
asking him to come in on Christmas Day. We were wondering who would be insane enough
to work on Christmas...it was Rick Rubin doing some work on a new Slayer record. I
wondered if I'd ever find myself working on Christmas...I did.
