Sweet Surrender - CD Liner Notes

Here are the liner notes to my new CD, Sweet Surrender, which I just finished mastering today. The CD, which will be available everywhere in CD and download form shortly, is a collection of improvised settings & songs. I play Flugelhorn, Trumpet, Piano and Tenor Sax. Recorded during a three week period in July 2009, this collection of recordings is unique for me in that I invented the tunes in the moment. It was a wonderfully refreshing process, one which I'm familiar with when collaborating with other musicians, but something I'd rarely tried doing while recording on my own.

Rob Birdwell - Horns for Hire on StudioTraxx

A compelling site so I'm giving the StudioTraxx service a try - we'll see if anything comes of it. But it's a sound idea and I know the process well since I've been a VHHH (virtual hired horn hand) for some years now. Bottom line is that there are lots of musicians out there and they (we) often need collaborators to spice things up. And if we (the hired hands) can share our talents for a fair rate and help someone along with their project, well that's awesome!
