This is the second project for Mark Furman and I. The most significant difference between the two is having Vince Tamburri play drums on these tunes. And what a difference it makes! Vince's playing brings a cohesiveness that ties all the pieces together into a unit. Although we paid more attention to focusing on a more consistent selection of pieces ( no vocals this time around ), it seems to be the interaction of live players that makes the tunes breathe. On a personal note, this seemed like two separate projects. First came writing and recording the tunes with Mark. Then exploring the recording of drums with Vince. When it came time to mix, everything flowed together seamlessly into a satisfying experience we were all happy with. We hope you'll enjoy it! Eli.
