Paris Records – The Kentucky Derby is Decadent and Depraved!

May 27, 2010

Hey Everybody,

A while back I blogged about this upcoming release and I was wondering how the project was coming along, so I decided to contact Paris Records to find out. Good news – they have just recorded the music tracks for the album in NYC.

Bill Frisell assembled a group of top New York session musicians to record his original compositions for the Paris Records project. Producers Hal Willner and Michael Minzer were very pleased indeed with the results– Minzer described the music as ” a picnic at Cape Fear. ” There’s some eerie tunes comin down……

Also I am delighted that Michael Minzer has decided to kindly share with us some photos from the recording session.

Willner and Minzer   ” You want THE EDGE ??…You got it!!! ”

I have to say that this project is shaping up to be something really special and as soon as there is a release date I will be sure to let you all know. Hopefully “soon” is the word!

Ok for now,

Rory
