Recording January 2022 - 55

Bass
With this set of revolving bass players, I decided to simplify
my usual upright bass recording approach (see the October
2021 Session Log). I marked the floor with an X and simply
used a Neumann KM184 and a Braingasm Ferro, placed almost
concentrically and pointing at the bridge. Both mics went
through Vintech X73 preamps.
Mixing and release
The last piece of the puzzle-I had to mix 61 songs in just
4-5 days because we had a deadline to make the album come
out on a specific date-no easy task!
Newvelle's business model is centered around vinyl, but obviously,
it would have been impossible to release 61 songs on vinyl, so they
made the songs available as a digital download on Bandcamp and
streamable on high-quality streaming services like Qobuz.

Donny McCaslin, Joe Lovano on the Coles,
HUM RCA ribbon mics
API 512c preamps). The reason why I set the ribbons up in
a straight row (rather than a semicircle) is because I wanted
every mic to be in the 90-degree-off-axis nook of the figure-8
polar pattern that ribbon mics are known for, therefore reducing
the amount of bleed of each horn into the adjacent
horn mic. My ribbon selections for the day were an RCA
KU-3A (primarily for soprano sax), two HUM Audio Devices
ARM-1S active ribbons (on altos, sopranos, and trombones),
and a Coles 4038 (mostly on trumpets).
Anytime there was a piece with just two horn players (such
as when Donny McCaslin played with Joe Lovano), I would
swivel the mics closer together so that I could capture each
horn with two different ribbon mics [see pic 4] and have different
flavors of sounds to choose from and blend in the mix.
Drums
I set up a versatile drum kit that every jazz drummer loves:
a vintage Rogers with coated heads along with five cymbal
stands. I placed the microphones so that the drummers could
easily position the toms to their liking as well as swap snare
drums and cymbals and still be on mic. I used a set of Latch
Lake Music micKing stands, which allowed me to mic up an
entire drum set with just two stands on the floor. These stands
are amazing at solving floor real estate problems, leaving
space for the drummers to set up and move cymbal stands
around. Everyone played the same kick and toms, and every
time we had a new drummer, I would double-check that
the mic positions were still good. My mic selections were a
LEWITT DTP 640 REX dual element (dynamic and condenser)
on kick, Shure SM57 dynamic mics on snare top and bottom,
a Microtech Gefell M940 condenser on the high-hat, two
Sennheiser MD 421 dynamic mics on toms, and two AKG
C414 condensers as overheads. Everything went through
Harrison Lineage and Sym Proceed preamps.
