A song from a double CD released August 2015, Kansas City Songs Vol. 1 & 2. Howard enlisted an all-star band from the local folk scene, including two former members of The Wilders, Betse Ellis and Phil Wade. I had started some of tracks here, but Phil recorded the lion’s share of the 26 songs at his home studio. I finished a few things here and there and mixed the album (and did the cover art).
Produced by Howard Iceberg. Recorded by Phil Wade at Alluvial Fan Studio, mixed at Largely Studios by Pat Tomek, winter-summer 2016.

My friend Jonathan Rundman, who lives in the Twin Cities area, asked me to play drums for a track he was working on. He sent a scratch guitar/vocal and a click track for me to play to. I recorded several different approaches to the drum track and sent it back to him. It was released as a digital single in May 2013 and is available for purchase from BandCamp.
Produced and recorded by Jonathan Rundman at Oak Street Hill, Ishpeming, MI and Verkstad Studio, Edina, MN. Drums recorded by Pat Tomek in Kansas City, MO. Mixed by Ed Ackerson at Flowers Studio, Minneapolis, MN.

I’ve done some studio work and played a few gigs with the lovely Tummons sisters, Emily and Beth. After our gigs were done, I wanted to document a little bit of what the live band had done, so we demoed two songs. This is an old Everley Brothers song.

A few months ago I went through some DAT tapes (remember them?) from the early ’90s, and rediscovered some live recordings back when I played with Kelley Hunt, a legendary R&B artist from Lawrence, KS. It was a New Year’s Eve gig at Liberty Hall in Lawrence. Mike Finnigan, who has played with everyone from Jimi Hendrix to Crosby, Stills & Nash to Etta James to Bonnie Raitt, was also on the bill with his band. He produced Kelley’s first album and had previously done some gigs with us, so it was great to get to play with him again.
Recorded live at Liberty Hall. Mixed by Steve Phillips and Pat Tomek at Big Time Studios 1994. Remastered by Pat Tomek June 2013.

A couple of years ago Jonathan Rundman asked me to mix some tracks he had recorded a while back, under less than ideal circumstances. I’m pretty pleased with the way it came out. Mixed October–November 2010 and included in the retrospective album Jonathan Rundman. 

Mixed by Pat Tomek at Largely Studios. Not quite sure where it was recorded.
