We are finally at the end of the road with the new T.basco-Album ” The land and the sea”. And we are glad to present some of the new material on saturday at the “Ekmagadi-Fest” in Magdeburg . Stagetime is 21.50. So hope to see you all there.
These tracks capture some moments of the rehearsal sessions for the “Pocket full of blues-Tour”. It was a pleasure to play three sold out concerts in GERA, MAGDEBURG and DRESDEN… will be continued !!! Now you have the chance to listen to a couple of tracks, we recorded, as first take best take, with only one mic.
Can´t be satisfied
We finished the work on our “The Songbook Vol.I “
The idea behind The Songbook-Project was and still is, to ask friends, poets and musicians (all of them are good friends for a long time) to write lyrics,songs or stories on a subject and send them to us. The subject of the first “Songbook” was “The Land and the Sea”. The idea goes back to Jan´s stays in Cornwall and on the Isle of Wight, where he went out fishing or played music with his friends.
Most of the songs are recorded in our tiny little recording room over the last weeks. J.C. Grimshaw came along to play the shimmering mandolin tunes on “The land and the sea” as well as the deep rollin gypsy guitar on “The sailor”(written by Rik van den Bosch). Thanks for that !!!
John Bateman, Suzie Leis & Martin Müller – Thank You! for the great work you did !!!
