Daniel Zelonky's 36 piece orchestra celebration of Marvin Gaye's Trouble Man
Carl "Buffalo" Nichols is a fine artist who we enjoy working with very much, and whom we are proud to see as a Fat Possum recording artist. We recorded his song "Back On Top" to tape, with the wonderful Matt Wilson on drums and bass accompanying Carl on his electric resonator guitar supporting a great vocal performance. Big analog sound on this one.
It was one of the great honors of my over 4 decades recording music to have Ellis Marsalis in my studio. I apologized to him for our humble upright piano. He played a few chords and said in his gravely voice, smiling gently, “I’ve played worse.” COVID 19 has taken him. He certainly let his audience know where he stood on his art when he said “ "Everybody that you see on stage at this time is a native of New Orleans, and everybody that you see is dedicated to the conviction that jazz is the greatest American art form, and we're going to perpetuate it." RIP
National Recording is experienced in every genre of music, from acoustic music to rock and everything in between. We've also recorded hundreds of local and national (Schoolboy Q, Fat Trell) hip hop performers going way back to our earliest days when "Duck Walk" by Ginesis ruled Milwaukee's radio and club scene, soon followed by Ray Nitti's "Bow", which we also produced.

Professor Pinkerton Xyloma and a stellar group of musicians were in and tracked their album LIVE to TAPE! We love this project ;)
