In my excitement, I forgot to tell you about his new album, Poets Embrace. You can buy it from his website at www.nathanhaines.com. i just did. He told me that it was recorded using the old style 2-track recording system, used by the old jazz masters like Miles Davis. this recording method means you get one go and one go only and getting it right – the true test of a real musician in these days of digital editing software.
If you have no clue who Nathan Haines is, he is a famous Saxaphone player from New Zealand. One of his best known songs is ‘Squire for Hire’ which he recorded with jazz/soul legend Marlena Shore. You can listen to that at Squire for Hire by Nathan Haines
