Blktop Project Recording
Ray Barbee, Chuck Treece, Matt Rodriguez, Josh Lippi and I hit Ruminator Audio in January, 2016, for a free-flow live-style recording session. We jammed for four days, fleshing out ideas and different feels—hoping to create enough material for an album (we had all the right ingredients, just needed to mix, mash and bring to a boil!).
We set up as though we were rehearsing: drums, amps, percussion and more all in the same room to capture a more live/in-the-moment feel. None of the tunes had set forms or lengths. We rolled on instinct and improvisation. Two days later we emerged with Concrete Jungle, a rump-shakin' soul-stirrin' blktop-surfin' documentation of sonic blood 'n' sweat! This album is dedicated to those who roll! —Tommy Guerrero
"Strut and Swagger"
