On Saturday May 23rd, I went up on Pocono Mountains at Kent Heckman' s RedRock studio. Pianist William Tatge was coming with me , we left Manhattan at 6 am taking a bus to go up there. We arrived at the studio when this session was just started. Kent is a fabolus sound ingeneer, also Bill Goodwin was there as Phil's first choice producer , Bill beside being a real master drummer is a very cool guy. I was really happy I could meet Phil and see him pretty well recovered after his last healt problem. What a great player he is still now ! He was one of my dearest heroes since when I was young. I loved his records with Daniel Humaire and the Europeean Jazz Machine back then in the seventies.
Last year I was asked to join this project of Michela' s lirics on Phil's music. Of couse I did even if, due to Phil healt, we could not have him coming to Italy and we had to prepare the tracks for him to record up here. It was my pleasure anyhow to be at this session just because the place , the people and the music were absolutely great to me.
