Worked again with bassist Simon Edwards on Sunday – always a great pleasure. He brought along a huge array of instruments to the session including a Guitarron (Mexican six stringed bass), Marimbula (a giant thumb piano), Ngoni (from the kora family), bass harmonica and a baritone ukulele, as well as his electric bass. His playing was exquisite.
For this album I am creating sensory environments in the studio for the musicians to play within. This is producing some very focused and inspiring performances.
