A couple of months went by very fast in preparation for the Fermin Muguruza recording in New Orleans which I was asked to produce. Fermin is a great and fascinating Basque singer, documentarian, writer with about a 30 year story in music under his belt. I think we may have gotten to the first New Orleans/Basque recording ever. And what an interesting development that is!
In passing we learned a lot about Basque things. Including Zatarain's...
It's worth clicking on the link above and finding out more about Fermin. His work has a lot of social import and he put together a fascinating album here, with a great lineup of heavy musicians from all across the New Orleans music world. Look for that in December.
At any rate, all of this producing and arranging slowed down things like posting more interviews and even posting concert schedules on the website. back to that, and with more Naked Orchestra things to come and the Joyce Opera ( "what's that? never heard of it. are we starting rumors?")
