Come on over for a Jazz Concert!
Now eight months deep in his retirement, my dad has converted the entire bottom floor of my parents' house into a recording studio. If you've ever wondered what goes on behind the scenes of a jazz studio session, this video should give you a pretty good idea!
The recording took place on Sunday, March 26, 2017 and features the Timberline Jazz Ensemble, directed by Dr. Martin Behnke. I streamed the entire event live in 2K HD to Facebook via an iPhone 7. There is quite a bit of time spent close to the performers, but also a fair bit on the recording & studio engineering side. My mom is also featured finishing a round of fresh baked cookies for the band during their break. A fun family effort in a very lively home. Dad will have more to say about the technology of studio recording, and his approach to incorporating the best of both the analog and digital worlds.
For now, I invite you to participate in a full uncut recording session with the Timberline Jazz Ensemble, recorded at Hartkop Productions. Welcome to our studio/home, hope you enjoy! :-D
