Indevout CD
I recorded this album on alto sax as a project with drummer Coach York in 2006. If you like alto sax and you like drums then this could be a good choice for you.

We recorded Indevout at my studio. I was in one room and Coach was in another and we heard each other via headphones; there was no visual contact during recording.

If I remember correctly the tracks were each recorded in one take.
Before recording I laid down a click track in Logic (audio sequencer) and put down a basic bass line and some chords on keyboard.

Sax was recorded on an AKG 414 ULS.

Drums had a factory matched pair of superb Russian mics, Oktava Mk 12s as overheads and, oddly enough and after much experimentation, an AKG C1000 for the bass drum. I also put a mic on the snare but found during mixing that I did not need it.

The somewhat loose concept is that the tracks follow a love affair that starts off well but progresses to breakup with some sadness on the way but with an optimistic ending.

I did not write any themes before recording; they were all improvised during the recording session and since there was no audience I tried to pick up the mood that existed between myself and Coach and to be inspired by his drumming.

I have since written some of the themes down and developed their form to make them into jazz pieces. The most outstanding example is probably The Day You Left which you may hear here on YouTube in a more developed version.
