Greg Maroney & I have done a lot of work together in the past. Some of this work has made it to 1st round Grammy nominations.
He has approached & recorded past albums in many different ways, which led him to various states & pianos.
This time around he wants to utilize his own Yamaha CS 8′ 2″ piano sitting in the comfort of his own living room.
Greg does all his writing & composing on this piano, so it only makes sense for him to want to record with his piano in a space he feels very comfortable with.
Last week i went to his house with my mobile recording rig to audition a few microphones on his piano. We also worked to figure out what kind of a sound he wants to capture, which will help when it comes time for doing the real recording that is slated for January.
