This improvisational selection was recorded as a part of the King Rubby in The Graden Of Eden session, but these pieces never made it to the final mix for one reason or another. These recordings are done in the same vein. I think Sabbatical is my favorite track on this one… Enjoy!

Here is the second installment of improv recordings done while I lived in San Francisco. This one is actually the first King Rubby recording experiment, which lead up to recording the Garden of Eden (previous post). Rubby had formulated a hypothesis, and asked Chris-O and myself to help perform the experiment. Uncharacteristically, I am playing drums on these tracks… which lead to my nickname “The Sloppitist” for the recordings. Regardless, I think some of the beats are dope ;) Enjoy!

I was out in San Francisco for a client work session last week and didn’t post anything. I have decided to make up for it with 2 posts this week which feature recordings that were done while I lived out in San Francisco in 1999 – 2000.

The first post in my San Francisco series is King Rubby in The Garden of Eden. This entire recording was one completely improvised day of playing, then another day mixing down (while Chris-O created the CD Artwork).

The idea behind this recording was to emulate the great King Tubby, whose style it was to let musicians run wild in the studio then freak out the mix in post-production. The musicians never knew what the final outcome would sound like. However, to take it a step further, King Rubby took the live effected mixes and ran it back into the musicians’ headphones so that they could not only play off each other, but also the King Rubby effected mix.
