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 !
