Last week I had the pleasure of laying trombone and trumpet tracks for Grinder Nova’s 2010 Christmas record. If you like mariachi with your NASCAR, then you love Grinder Nova. It’s a cocktail of even parts Tijuana Brass, James Bond and pit crew.
We recorded at Jeff Bakos’ studio and let me tell you, that’s always a treat! For those who don’t know Bakos’ work, check out “Already Free” by Derek Trucks Band, which won the GRAMMY for “Best Contemporary Blues Album” in 2010.
The album release party is December 9th at Star Bar. Come out, add some brass to your eggnog!
