Marc Anderson is an amazing percussionist, and I was thrilled to get him to record
on these compositions.
We had two dates at Bellows in Feb/March 2018, Mic'd up to the hilt.
Day one was straight Congas and Bongos.
Day two was smalls - with a whole table of percussion Marc improvised on.
I've known Marc since 1987 when I started my first Vibes recording project.
It was at a tiny studio in Saint Paul he shared with musician Steve Tibbetts.
I was tracking all kinds of instruments, and playing the vibes.
The studio was always full of percussion, guitars and recording gear.
I worked there with an engineer named Bob Hughes.
Marc has been an inspiration to me musically my whole life, his recordings are enigmatic, and more recently - his advocacy of mindfulness at his foundation.
