Paul Van Ross mixes the Cuban Album

22 November.

Spent the day in studio with Tristan Ludowyk of Hope Street records.

Tristan’s attention to detail perfect for re mixing the recent Cuban Album I recorded in Havana with many famous musicians:

Paul Van Ross – tenor sax & flute

Changuito – timbales

Yoraldy Abreu Robles – conga, shekere, shaker, guiro

Alejandro Falcon – piano

Jorge Aragon – piano

Gaston Joya Perellada – double bass

Oliver Valdes – drums


One step closer.



Paul Van Ross mixes album in Cuba

September 7.

Spent 8 hours mixing and editing the recording session at Egrem studio with Alejandro the sound engineer.

I think it was a good idea to mix here at EGREM in Cuba. Apart from the fact that Alejandro was very quick at the computer, there were also many preset EQ’s for all the Latin percussion already in the system. These were also used by other notable artists who have recorded and mixed here at EGREM like Manilito Simonet, Pedrito Martinez etc. I’m happy to go with their expertise.

Also amazed at how much communication you can get by pointing to a computer screen and making a few hand gestures.

Much of the work done. Yeeeay. A busy week.

Now to get some flute lessons off the Cubans. The other reason came here!
