Jeff and Joe knock out the horn parts.

Jeff Gray, our new sax player, was baptized into the Chaise Lounge recording whirlwind by recording the parts to eight songs in one mondo recording session

The New Christmas Album-continued!

The New Christmas Album-continued!

Two days of amazing performances occurred over the last week. First Jeff Gray and Joe Jackson put down the horn parts on ALL the songs in one mammoth session.  Next Marilyn came in and magically, effortlessly and beautifully laid down the lead vocal tracks for all the songs in one four hour session. It sounds impossible.  Ken Schubert, our engineer, was in near-disbelief.

And the horn section!

Jeff Gray on sax and Joe Jackson, trombone, were at work last night on the new Chaise Lounge Christmas Album.  It is tentatively called “Out Under the Sky”, which comes from the lyrics to the Appalachian ballad, “I Wonder as I Wander.”  It is a song that will be on the album.

Chaise Lounge: starting a new Christmas album!

Chaise Lounge: starting a new Christmas album!

We are back at Cue Recording Studios and putting together our new Xmas CD.  It will have titles like: “Who Doesn’t Like Christmas” and “A Not So Silent Night.”  An incredible a capella choir, BRIDGE, is going to provide a layer of sound never before heard on a Chaise Lounge CD.  Right now, we are just completing the rhythm tracks. Stay tuned.
