Back to Recording Projects - - - - - Brandywine Valley Saxophone Quartet Project

On October 13, 2013, I received an email reply to my Craigslist add for my recording services. The subject line was "Record my Sax Quartet, please"
About a week later, I packed up my remote recording gear, and traveled to Delaware to record the Brandywine Valley Saxophone Quartet.

Click here for a detailed explanation of my approach to recording and mixing the quartet.

The Quartet Members are:
Wenedell Hobbs, Soprano Sax / Leader
Vince Lardear, Alto Sax
Bob Howell, Tenor Sax
David Kee, Baritone Sax

Another great arrangement of Benny Golson's

"Whisper Not"

One of Wendell's greatest inspirations was to arrange a medley of jazz pieces which all contain the word "Eyes" in their titles.

He named the medley "The All Seeing Eye"
