Herbie Hancock’s Cantaloupe Island

Here is a quick rendition of Herbie Hancock’s Cantaloupe Island on my nylon strung Godin ACS-SA Slim. The guitar is plugged into an Apogee One and recorded on Garage Band. There is no EQ or compression on the Godin track, the only effect is a touch of reverb. The backing track is from the amazing Jamey Aebersold.

With John Bennett Band

John Bennett Band

I’m playing here with John Bennett Band. John is a fantastic trombonist and a composer, and it was a real privilege to be working with him for close to 20 years. First, My Funny Valentine a Rodgers and Hart tune, recorded at the BBC Maida Vale Studios in London at the beginning of 2011; Barbar on vocals. Next, Sand Song a John Bennett composition, recorded on the same session.
