Husband on Antoine Fafard new album clip

Postby Gary Husband » Tue Sep 06, 2016 1:51 am

Hi all at HOD,

I wanted to run by you a couple of little videos from a session that marks as the recorded maiden voyage of my customised shell red Pearl drum kit! Needless to say I'm delighted with it and happy to announce the brand new album by bassist and composer Antoine Fafard ("Sphere") from which these little recording session clips derive. I'm playing drums (lead synth and piano too) throughout the record and very happy about the production, how it all came out sounding and that Antoine asked me to play on the project!
I really hope you enjoy it.

Best wishes all,

Gary, was just listening to Gongzilla "Thrive", came up on playlist. wow, forgot I had that, and didn't know that was you!! great playing as usual!

Fafard is really on it it these days, would love to see a live gig or dvd from you guys! My progressive rock band mates are getting ideas from his/your tunes!! there seems to be some of those elements in there. maybe i can them to do some fusion for once!!

BTW, this album release was mentioned here: http://www.houseofdrumming.com/phpbb3/v ... 03&p=40247

Very very nice album... contains interesting daring moments, not keeping it safe all the time, which is a plus... Great context for Mr Husband's orchestral flare to flourish, very very solid drumming here, not expecting less from the Master!! :)

Beautiful playing by Jerry De Villiers jr., especially his solo on "Renaissance Man" and on this one linked below "Reminiscence". The "Renaissance Man" solo is IMHO one of the most beautiful piece of Art I've ever heard.

Ha! Thank you sir.

But why is it people always only mention the guitar solos!! :-)

People just react more to those strings being mangled, I guess.

Personally, I'm pretty picky on the sounds I like so that type of guitar tone doesn't really do it for me anymore. Sitting right in front of Mike Landau's cab on small club gigs changed my whole perspective on guitar tone long ago.

We all appreciate different things in music.

I loved the show you played with Jom M. in Trondheim last year. Opening the shw with "Raju", my favourite tune, and I knew it was gonna be a good night.

Cool to see you so into what you're doing and I enjoyed the double drumming very much. Solid unit that band.

Mea culpa!! I have no good reasons for you Gary because I really really dig your keyboard playing on this.. It is World-Class sir!! Taking that same track below as an example.. How you pick-up and where you take your solo at 4:29 is outstanding... BRAVO!

PS: Please keep us posted on your potential future tribute to Bill Evans piano projects...

NEW!
Full track from Antione Farard's SPHERE! "Cherishing" is a co-composition between Jerry De Villiers Jr and Antoine and which also features my piano and drums.
Hope you enjoy.
