I do enjoy recording sessions. There is always something new to be learned and there is always valuable experience to be gained by working with established sound engineers. Preparation is key, with knowledge of what it is you want to record and, in the case of singing to backing tracks, familiarity with the track. I was even able to accompany myself for one track on the piano, and another on my favourite instrument, the organ (a very nice three-manual electronic Viscount).
I decided to record a few tracks in advance of my Vancouver trip in order that I could have something to offer the attendees in the event they enjoyed my performance – and I am very happy with the outcome!
