This time, it’s some tracks dredged up from the turn of the century. This was for Brooke Ratliff back in Detroit. I’d worked for her once before around 1994 in a group called Motion Control. That sorta petered out, but I got a call from her in late 1999 to lay down the drums for her new album. It was all new material, but at least I already was familiar with her style, so I agreed.
While I had been working with a click during my practice routine, I’d never before done it in a studio environment. Needless to say, this was quite an experience and I’m very glad I did it. The click has become such an important aspect of my rehearsing and recording as of late, and I really think it’s helped my meter and continues to do so.
For personal reasons, however, this would be the last I’d play drums for nearly 6 full years before jumping back on the wagon in 2006.
Tracks are here.
