Tim: bass (2 tracks)
Andy: guitar (Strat) (3 tracks), drum programming, acoustic guitar
Jon: drum kit

Recording started 8 Feb 2006 in mangobananas studio, Ithaca, NY, with Tim and Andy recording loops. Another quick jam with Tim (Feb 8, 2006) over a drum beat I programmed with the mouse using Ultrabeat synth. This has some cool effects and potential for layering -- I can hear a gravelly rap over this, some urban devolution and psychedelic descent. On July 2 (Jon jam 4) Jon overdubbed drums while I played strat doing some soloing. When mixing and arranging that I found an acoustic guitar part that I layed in for 8 or 10 measures as an alternate part. Recorded that on the Taylor with the usual 2 mic setup on July 5, 2007. Also, while I was walking though the song 2 bars at a time doing the drum comps, I heard goovy parts and I played around and recorded with clavinet (EVD6) and piano (EXS24). The piano part is becoming the vocal melody (or counter-melody) in my head. That got me to this final mix on July 12, 2007.

This is an album of some studio collaborations with Tim in Andy's studio from 2006-2009. Tim and Andy have been recording stuff since 1979.

The first three are from two sessions in 2006, and the fourth from Nov 2007, when Tim was visiting from England. Andy did some further work on "cuban sandwich in early 2007, with more arrangement and instrumentation, and Jon replaced the computer drums with an overdub. Then came another two awesome impovisations with Andy on keys, Tim on fretless acoustic bass on another visit in June 2009. All recorded in mangobananas studios, Ithaca, NY, with Logic playing drums, Tim playing basses, Andy playing guitars and keys.
