PHOTOGRAPHY NEWS
Most of my latest sets can be found on my Flick pages
HERE. I've been working with Nikon D800 since August 2012 and although it took a while to get used to its very sensitive 36.4 MP sensor I'm glad that I've upgraded from the previous model of D700. I've also upgraded my printer to CANON pixma model, which does 19x13 prints on artistic rag paper. It makes great looking prints, which last up to 200 years!

RECORDING ARTS NEWS
My latest studio recording (April, 2014) has just been mixed to GP9 tape via analog means. It features wonderful playing by NYC-based guitarist
Paul Bollenback, bassist Zack Page, and drummer Evan Martin. Scheduled for release in 2015, this one features a few songs by Paul as well as my originals. Stay tuned…

My last year's jazz trio/quartet album featuring Grammy Award NYC-based artist
Donny McCaslin on tenor saxophone, Mike Holstein on acoustic bass, and Marian Sevcik on drums is awaiting a release in January 2015. Stay tuned…

All my album productions have been recorded using hand selected vintage tube microphones and preamps by Neumann, Sony, Telefunken, AKG, Royer, and Coles as well as world-class converters by SSL C200 and Prism Sound ADA8-XR. The mixing stage consists of both digital (protools) and analog processing exclusively utilizing tube and solid state outboard gear by both vintage and modern manufacturers such as Manley, Tube-Tech, Neumann, Studer, Summit Audio, and Neve. The final mixes are then run straight into 1/2" tape, which in my opinion still renders the best sonic results, mainly due to natural compression and saturation of an analog tape. This process can NOT be replaced or substituted for using virtual plugins. At least not as of 2014....
