He has learned that simplicity is everything, he has been specializing himself in recording and mixing in a more traditional or should we say historic? way of the Jazz of the 50's/60's/70's, recording the players in one room, Live, with only a few accoustic treatments, the help of auralux, and a beautiful "Go Between/Bass Trap" he built himself. You work with the accoustics of the room... may it be a home studio, or a church, or an opera hall.
"Don't loose the bleed, work with it... and preserve the authentic dynamics of the band playing".
