On Thursday and Friday last week we held the recording sessions for the fourth phase of Drum Travel. This was very productive. On Thursday Sandeep did overdubs on shimedaiko, ghatam and bodhran and we got a got a new excellent groove going on the lower pitched ring drum he brought. We also straightened out quite a few details on some of the other tracks. Then on Thursday night, Sandeep joined me for a gig with Howlin` Blues at Chapter 12 winebar in Hailsham. It was fun to go into live playing mode after the focus and concentration in the studio.
