The Nick Tann Trio formed late in 2016 are playing their first gigs this year starting at The Bedford in Balham on 30th May and I really wanted you to hear the new sound. It’s such a joy to play with Bastien and I am simply loving it. This feels like the start of something quite wonderful and has inspired me so much I am writing new tunes as well as revisiting some old favourites.
The plan is to play this summer picking up other musicians as we go in a kind of snowball effect, culminating with a brand new album November/December. There is enough new material to record it now but we need to get the songs “bedded in”.
Recorded at home over a few weeks around Christmas and New Year 2016/7 using Logic and the Rhode mic that Ross gave me all those years ago. Bastien Terrraz on double bass, Nic Bradford guesting on electric guitar on Sadder than Sad and me on my beautiful old Taylor 810 acoustic guitar plus a few clicks and the xylophone I bought for my daughter Izzy a few years ago.
Lovingly mixed and mastered by the wonderfully talented Sigurdor Gudmundsson, www.skonrokkstudios.com.
The fabulous circular cd design was created by the hugely talented artist Terence Noble.
All songs written by me Nick Tann. I also printed up the cd labels and stuck them on the discs, typed and printed and stuck on the back cd label, printed and cut the individual lyric sheets which I then put in each cd sleeve. This was all done at home in my studio so if some of the corners don’t match or the odd label is a bit off centre, you will have to forgive me. It’s a vinyl look cd in a plain brown cardboard sleeve with the track listings and extra information printed on a label stuck to the back. Inside the sleeve there are lyric sheets for all the songs. If you want me to sign it with a personal message to you then please say so.
