Equinox

The second release from Soundkeeper Recordings features Markus Schwartz & Lakou Brooklyn.  Recorded in a beautiful auditorium built in 1908, the music was captured in stereo, at 24/192 (high resolution) and the dynamics of the performance were left fully intact.  The goal was to capture the sound of the band as they would be heard by a listener present at the performance.

Like the "old days", the players came in, played the songs (making musical magic in the process) and at the end of four hours, we'd recorded an album.


We All Break, drummer Ches Smith's project with pianist Matt Mitchell, and myself and master Haitian drummer Daniel Brevil. Total artist share of profits will be donated to Partners in Health Haiti/Zanmi Lasante.
