Days eight and nine of mixing the PANTECHNICON album saw work on the ‘title track’ Pantechnicon, followed by a first attempt at assembling a finished master. Made a couple of small alterations to some of the tunes after hearing them in context, made a second version, and left it overnight. On coming back to it the next day, I made another couple of adjustments having listened to it A/B with some of my favourite albums, and was swiftly reminded of how much real, deep bass most people’s records DON’T have! Backed off a little on the compression as well, and made a third version. This one might just be the one, but I’m going to leave it a few days before listening to it again to decide. PANTECHNICON will prevail!
Guy Hatton's PANTECHNICON is a suite of compositions for small electric jazz ensemble, and the group gathered to perform them.
The first performance took place at the Harrogate International Festival fringe in July 2010, and subsequently at the Grove Inn Jazz Club in Leeds in November 2010.
The CD of Guy Hatton's PANTECHNICON was released on September 5 2011, and features: Guy Hatton (guitar), Phil Meadows (alto & soprano saxophones, electronics), Graham Clark (electric violin), Dave Evans (keyboards), Roger Inniss (bass guitar) and Jose Williamson (drums). The album is also available as a digital download from iTunes, Amazon and other online stores.
"The best jazz gig in Harrogate since Wayne Shorter" Graham Chalmers, Fringe Festival Director.
"Full of imagination and melody." Harrogate Advertiser 23-07-2010
