In a previous blog post we announced a new remix of “I want you to know”.

After a few suggestions we decided to attempt to combine the Star Wars Imperial March (A.K.A. The Darth Vader March) into the remix and came up with a completely mad new rendition of the whole thing. If you enjoy brass, Selina Gomez, Star Wars, and wacky videos – this one is for you!

We created a really really cool new remix of Selena Gomez’s “I Want You To Know” (did I say really really Cool)
with a live brass band replacing the electronic backing.
Its six trombones, two bass trombones, eight trumpets, four cornets, four euphoniums, three tubas, two bass trumpets, four french horns, live snares, bass drums and cymbals.
I know there are other remixes out there, but I hope this one stands out, as I tried to give it a completely fresh angle. I think Selena’s voice meshes with the brass so nicely. Maybe we can do an original take of a new song one day!

LISTEN TO IT HERE

ENJOY!

Reading this post in the huffington post I realized that we are all left out of the wonderful fun of the SGPD (Syrian Government Photoshop Department). This is an attempt to rectify this. Included in this set is also a DIY version that allows you to join the fun, and create your own image!

The Reality TV people got this one right.

Hello 2012! We’re almost 21 days in to the new year. Have you worn out all options for entertainment this coming Saturday? I hear it’s going to be a cold one, and you’re probably going to stay inside. If so, ABC is premiering some top performers on a new show “Bud United Presents: “The Big Time.”  This is good  stuff.

OK I have a bias, but it’s trustworthy. Viewers of The Big Time will have a chance to sample the dynamic songs of one Laura Jeanne who I had the pleasure of working with on her debut single Coincidence, back in November. In respect to her engaging personal qualities as well as her full-bodied mezzo tone, this is an up-and-coming singer/songwriter you won’t want to miss.

For Laura Jeanne who was chosen as one of 3 finalists, her participation on The Big Time is clearly a labor of love.

ABC has not announced whether this episode will be available to watch on-line later. So dust off your TiVo or have the in-laws take the kids for a few hours.

Who: British singer/songwriter Laura Jeanne

What: ABC’s Bud United Presents: “The Big Time

When: Saturday, January 21st at 3pm EST

 

Can you tell we forgot to take a picture during the actual recording?

Don Downs, Tony Gorruso and Your Truly recorded for Israel Lamm and Nochi Krohn on Friday aboard the USS Nimitz. Ha-ha. No really, it’s just my studio. We’re sitting in front of two personal mixers which are part of the studio’s really cool personal monitoring system that I’ll blog about in the near future.

We look a little self-conscious here. Maybe it’s because none of us are wearing earphones as we would during an actual recording. I forgot to take a picture until we were nearly done, and said “look natural” on the ten-second dash back to my chair.

From here, Don left to play for La Cage Aux Folles on Broadway and Tony headed to West Side Story.
