Hoochie Coochie Men
second Hoochie Coochie album is progressing well. Bob Daisley
sent Jon Lord a copy of the rough tracks in advance, and
he went into studios in London on July 19th to lay his keyboard
work down, with Bob Daisley on hand, and Darren Schneider
at the desk (he engineered "Abandon" amongst others).
album is rooted in r'n'b, but is mostly new material written
by Bob, with a couple of covers. Whilst Jon is obviously
my favourite Hammond keyboard player, seeing him at work
in the studio showed just how aware of everything he is
when doing work like this. A listen to the track to refresh
his memory; jotting down some ideas on paper, a run-through
on the Hammond, and then a take, followed by a second
if necessary and then a retake on parts he felt he could
improve on without spoiling the immediacy of the take.
Jon should be on most of the album, and was full of enthusiasm
for the material.
we need now is to try and persuade them to tour! Images
