I've just got back from a jam packed 2 days at Fieldgate Studios in Cardiff with Misha's band, recording the group's second album for Edition Records. Misha is a fantastic bass player who I met whilst studying at the Royal Academy of Music, and completing the line up is Matt Herd and Sam Rapley on alto and tenor sax, trumpeter James Davison and Liam Dunachie at the piano. On the album however will be some additional guest musicians, as was the case with Misha's debut album New Ansonia. We've recorded a collection of new original compositions written by Misha, which are as eclectic as ever yet all have Misha's personality embedded in them, bringing all of the pieces together as a whole. Looking forward to how it's going to turn out!
If you haven't listened to New Ansonia then I'd recommend checking it out - and if you have, then keep your eyes and ears pealed around the beginning of next year when the new album should hopefully be released!
Here are a some snaps from the session:
