On our Music page we are pleased to present
- A new set from May 2012: the "Duo Mando Guitar Bass" sessions. The first two cuts feature the mandolin in the doubled down bass role, along with guitar and vocals. We tried something different, and it came out that way! The second two cuts feature bass, guitar and vocals. Lots of jams from tune to tune. Dig it!
- Four hours of originals and covers from the March 2012 "Duo Power Cuts" session at SilverSound Studios!
- and five CD's for your listening pleasure.
The three latest CD's consist of a cycle of 24 tunes - all arranged, performed, engineered, and mixed by Gabriel at the new SilverSound Studios in Haverford, Pennsylvania. Gabe sang all the vocal leads and harmonies, and played rhythm guitar, keyboards, and EWI (electronic wind instrument) for leads, bass, textures, and percussion parts.
On the two earlier CD's, Gabe, performing as Chesterfield Bellweather, plays trombone and baritone horn for leads and backing sectional parts. He is joined throughout by Abe on bass, electric and acoustic guitars, guitar synth, and mandolin. On selected tunes, old friend J. Leon Hernest is added on conga, djembe, African cowbell, and tambourine.
