Hi folks, Gene Weed here:

Many people know me as Mr. MS.


This is a study of my Multi-Track techniques, and Story Telling - 601


In appreciation of your sincere interest on the Jazz Network, I am publishing the 'Tail End" of my famous 1989 "JAZZ ALIVE" concert from Colorado Springs, CO.


MULTI MICROPHONE MIXING 601


It is a Story . . . . .

THE WEST SIDE STORY


This piece by Leonard Bernstein features Ken French- as 'BUDDY RICH'.


ABOUT

Equipment Features


PRIME:

Two Neumann U47's in a near-far field, 3 feet from the Saxes, 2 U87i's on the bones, 2 KM-83i's on the trumpet section, Direct Bass, EV 655C on the piano, and . . my prize vintage RCA Boom mounted BK-7 Ribbon,, 3.5 feet above the drums. Not heard on this track were my 2 RCA 77-DX ribbons on guitar and solos.


TOUCH

Other solo - announce mics used were; 6 ea. Sennheiser 425's as solo and announce mics.


This entire program was mixed live to my Two Track Nagra III, from a 24 channel Whetstone. It was simultaneously feed nationally via National Public Radio Network. The track here is from my Nagra.


The year was 1989.


Listen to me as I sweated to mix this 21 piece Big Band over my AKG K-140 earphones back stage.


It was a night to remember. Sweat rolled down my face. Pressure. Everything I learned as a big band musician and producer was about to come under test. Could I deliver?


Was everything going to break down . . .


TELLING THE STORY

Listen carefully as I followed the main story. The Saxes ALWAYS tell the story. Listen carefully as to how I mixed them with the other parts.


THE KEY STORY LINE

Listen carefully how I slowly introduced the drum, then followed Ken into the final climax.


RIP & STUDY

You have my permission to RIP this and play it on a graphic editor as it plays. You will see for yourself how Dynamics works in story telling.


Warmest of regards, and many thanks for all your wonderful world-wide support.


The full concert is still available at my bookstore.


It will knock your socks off.


Big Band - "Jazz Alive", from Colorado Springs !

GONE BUT NOT FORGOTTEN...

Jaijai, what a wonderful mission you've undertaken to create such a place for artistic minds to meet and share their hearts. A place to renew faded determinations, and revive lessened momentums. A place to display our wares and reconfirm to one another that we actually are on the right track.

I commend you, Jaijai, for caring so much that you created this castle of the heart for all of us. I want to share my praise for all of the new friends as well as old friends that I've met and will meet here in our castle. Here we can garnish the where-with-all, the strength, the conviction, and the selflessness through our symbiosis, to share our gift to the world with an unbiased agenda.

My mentor, Daisaku Ikeda says of art: "A beautiful flower delights and refreshes the hearts of all people equally, no matter what soil it grows in. That is the power of beauty. The same is true of great art. It is this spirit that the German poet Heinrich Heine sang of when he wrote that once the peapod bursts open, the sugar peas inside are for everyone to enjoy."

Let's be audacious, my friends!
