Last update I told you guys that we were going to have the album mixed by engineer Chris Weeda. Well, he did… and how! It was such a pleasure spending the day with Chris at his mixing studio. He made the recordings sound exactly how I wanted it to sound. I’m really excited with the results and can’t wait to share it with you guys! The next step is to decide on the right track order and have the album mastered. Meanwhile a fantastic illustrator has begun on the artwork… more about that later…

After having finished the recordings the next step is to select the takes that will end up on the actual album. I took a while off from listening to it and started freshly again last week. It’s funny how differently you hear things after not having heard it for a while. After a few days of intensive listening, lots of notes and lots of coffee, I finally selected the best takes for the album. So now we are ready for mixing. Next week I will spend a day in the studio in Amsterdam with Chris Weeda, a fantastic engineer and a sound genius. He recorded and mixed tons of records and is Toots Thielemans’ live sound engineer. Can’t wait to hear what Chris will do with this recording. I will definitely keep you guys posted!

The recordings for the new album went very well! We had a wonderful and relaxed time at the luxurious studio in Germany and recorded nine tracks in two days. Right now I’m in the process of listening to different takes and deciding which takes will eventually end up on the album. Next month we will be mixing the tracks. This is all very exciting, because this album is the first album I’m releasing independently. Oh.. and the first album release concert is booked already… Grab pen and paper (or your smartphone): May 10th, 2012. BIMHUIS!!!
