I had a free morning to get caught up with the laundry, etc. Spent about an hour playing with my new EH Tube pre, just arrived yesterday. Ran my bass through a Radial ProDI into the EH, and was very impressed by the sound, nice and warm and round, a very useable DI sound. Then ran Minimoog and Rhodes through it, again, very nice. Finally recorded a little acoustic guitar through it with a MXL 604, also very nice. I think I'm really happy with this pre, especially for under $200.
Spent some time learning keyboard parts I recorded on a friend's CD 2 summers ago for his CD release next week. I had kind of learned the parts as I was recording them, punching in section by section, so this is the first time I actually played the parts.
Then walked the dog, it's been snowing here. Then to work where I've been playing the new Jack DeJohnette/John Scofield/Larry Goldings Trio Beyond CD on ECM. It's a live recording of a tribute to Tony Williams Lifetime, and, while not quite as scorching as Lifetime, is one of the coolest Jazz discs I've heard lately. Between this and his recent collaboration with Medeski Martin and Wood, Scofield is doing some great stuff lately.
