First-hand accounts of the Berklee experience

La Timbística Brought the Saratoga Sun Out!

Believe it or not, they did! As the funky Latin grooves and beautiful arrangements floated out into the rainy, cloudy Saratoga midday, Paulo suddenly played the chimes in his percussion kit (see pic). Like a film score, the sun rays illuminated my forehead and reflected off some audience members’ glasses… including my colleague, great friend, and mastermind of this amazing student touring/recording project, the one and only Mr. Rob Hayes!

Thanks Paulo! Now could you please walk around Boston playing the chimes all day for the rest of the “summer” : )

Bottom line the performance was fantastic!! And proof of that will be the recording that Chris will provide us with.

I’m heading on another trip (holiday this time). I will post more about Saratoga as people mail pics–and revisit the trip when listening to the recording.





Thank You Berklee & Gracenotes

    Hi Billy and all!

    Just wanted to say thanks again to you, Robb, and La Timbistica. The trip was a welcomed hiatus from the daily routine of Berklee.

    I also wanted to let everyone know that the tracks sound great! it is taking me a bit longer to mix then planned, but no worries. They’ll be available soon.

    Hope everyone is enjoying their holiday weekend!
