Bias Studios’ new video service will be taping the Tom Principato Band’s performance at The Barns of Wolftrap on March 20th. Other video projects in various stages of completion include the Texas Chainsaw Horns with the Hot Mess Burlesque at Bethesda Blues and Jazz Club at their Feb. 28th gig, and, as Bobby Fagel predicted, now it’s just a memory and a couple of subpoenas. Grammy Award winning Afro Bop Alliance with Roland Vasquez, live in Studio A February 8 and 9 will be available for viewing soon. And we also have the upcoming video of Afro Blue performing April 7th at the Cramton Auditorium for the Howard University Alumni Jazz Concert.
Studios A, B and C have been hopping with audio work as well with Uptown Vocal Jazz Quartet, Jim Ebert and Sean Russell producing and engineering a project for Swell Daze, final mixing and mastering for Afro Blue’s next release. South Rail’s new EP, produced in L.A. by Don Was, mastered and mix tweaks were done at Bias. Smithsonian Folkways has just released a new Seldom Scene cd recorded in Studio A “Long Time. . .” with Pete Reiniger engineering. A video of the Scene’s song “Wait a Minute, “ was filmed mostly in Studio A with insider perspective from The Punch Brothers’ Chris Eldridge (Ben’s son). Other guests for the sessions were John Starling and Emmylou Harris. Watch at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKukd7rWZrs
