Jazz Saint Louis educational director Phil Dunlap just confirmed his project with the Pan Galactic Company. The project is tracking two new tunes in the style of Count Basie, to introduce young people to the sound and structure of big band jazz from the first half of the last century. view from above  
Much consideration was given to tracking the project at the club, Jazz at the Bistro in Saint Louis during off hours to capture that style and sound of the early Basie band, but after much discussion, and consideration the sessions have been moved to Shock City Studios in Saint Louis. Paul Hennerich, audio producer and chief engineer explained the decision. “The Bistro is a fanatic place to hear and record jazz what 
we need to accomplish can be achieved better in the studio setting. We chose Shock City Studios because of their giant tracking room with a 20+ foot ceiling. This gives us the space we need to track the whole band in real time to get that great sound from the by gone era. The 20' ceiling allows for the sound to bloom and open up.”  Shock City Control Room UPDATE: 7/26/2010.  
    Tracking was completed today at Shockcity Studios, and mixing is slated for a date in the near future.   Everyone was very pleased with the sound of the room, the band and the microphones.  The band was tight, to the point, that we ended up spending more time setting up than recording. Enjoying the playback In the control room we were having such a good time, that we were really disappointed, when Phil called it a wrap.  It was just one of those sessions you didn't want to end.   Luckily mixing will start shortly in earnest.   Check back for future updates! 
Enjoy the taste...
