Description
I am just having the best time i ever had with these Tuesday shows. I am playing with GREAT players every week, and it is so inspiring. And the most inspiring for me, being a guitar player, has been Mark Stunkle, our own mjer IBSTRAT. I am so blessed to have been able to meet and become friends with this man. He is a great guy, hilarious in a way that is hard to describe, and a wonderful teacher. As guitar players get older, they are embarrassed to reveal the stuff that they DONT know, specially someone like me who has be playing since about the civil war, and should know much more about it...Mark makes you feel totally at ease. it's great.

the first half of this is Freddie Hubbard's SUNFLOWER...Mark harmonizes the melody and takes the beautiful first solo. My solo follows, and you will notice that my guitar is down in the mix...that is the result of a mic that decided it wanted the night off. After my solo we merge into the Meters tune PEOPLE SAY, which I have posted a few times before...again, Marks guitar is the more prominent one in the mix, and it is truly great. He gets the funk on like mad, and plays a mindblower solo....

We are VERY lucky to have a musician/human the caliber of Mark Stunkle in this community. He shares his great guitar playing with us for FREE. If he gives me permission, I would love to post some of his solo work from that night.

thanks mark, for everything

Very cool!
I'd just love to get to a Tuesday night show Fran - especially if Mark could be there as well. You never know - we might get to the States sometime in the future.
Lovely stuff!

I can hear the smiles
Great jams here, but I would expect nothing less from a couple of greats. Not sure what kind of phasey thing you added between right and left cans, but the mix in my headphones on these sound slightly unusual, with a little "extra space" between channels, can't put my finger on it, not necessarily bad, but an unusual "spread out" feel to it. But a clean mix, easy to hear everything. Hey, who's screamin' out Ed H.'s name, that was funny! Super performance, and great music you two.
ttfn,
Drakonis

i have a plug in that
iscalled a stereo widener. Seeing all the mics are being simultaneously recorded, i cant do a true stereo separation. I can suggest it by adjusting the close mic on the guitar and bass, but because the guitar and bass are also being recorded by the same mics as the drums and vocals...it just gets muddy...i have found that by using this stereo widener, i can get a cleaner sound on everything, and it sort of replicates what i hear onstage.
thanks for the careful listen as always eduard.

I love how you two harmonized the melody! Mind blowing solos from the both of you. How about some props for that rock solid rhythm section. The Meters tune is seriously funky!

thanks
Mark harmonized it. I played my usual pleebian single string stuff and he added all the hippness. I wish the mic on my amp worked...it hasnt given me any trouble since.

And yes, The Blazin Bishops are an amazing team.

Cool show
I would have loved to have been in the audience for that one.

Very nice quality of the live recording. It's so easy to overload the siggnals on live recordings.

Nice flow.

Killer axe work you guys.

Thanks....
For name checking me and the increasing celebrity of my poverty... Gets me all tingly....

I really want the two of you to keep this stuff going... This is what you got with you half konked out with a cold and the gods of recording not smiling on you, and it still sounds pretty darned awesome to me...

So...keep inviting Mark back, and keep recording it...

I really enjoyed this night, and I look forward to more...

Oh yeah, and fly Neil out, too...

blessed
is the word. i am just now plugging in the macbook and listening to tonight's show, which featured another amazing keyboard player, and a guest drummer. The night felt really good even tho the crowd was sparse.....but i have all these recordings now. it's a good feeling.

I havent done a drum track using loops in so long, i dont remember how. I hope to do some more "studio" stuff, but right now, these live shows everyweek are like heaven.

This
was really fun Fran!I seriously haven't had that much fun playing in a long time.Your band is so great- I do need to get used to playing live again though... too bad your mike didn't work, sounds great anyway- I love your playing! Thanks for saying all that nice stuff about be but the inspiration thing goes both ways, you play with so much conviction and soul I just hope some of it trickles down on me when we are playing!

The truth is,
...neither one of you wore an ounce of Spandex, neither one of you wore a cape, neither one of you wore any sort of elevated shoes, neither one of you wore dark glasses...There was NO leather in evidence...

And the dance numbers, and your coordinated moves therein, were, dare I say, lackluster?

actually
listening to these recordings, we make a pretty good team. our styles are different enough and complimentary, and our tones are different. i wish to god the mic on my amp had worked! worked fine tonight.....

thanks mark!! you are the man.

Fusion folding into funk...
13 minutes of joy. 2 great guitarists, a tight backing band and some fusion folding into funk. I quite recently saw the Meters supporting B. B. King and they still cook. Unfortunately B. B. is starting to forget the recipe :-( Thanks, Mark and Fran. Take care, Peter.
