Piano/sax on "Bottle of Wine" Robert Ellis
 
Hey Jacquire thanks for doing this!

I love the sounds on "Bottle of Wine," in particular I find myself referencing the wonky piano sound, but even moreso is that saxophone sound. It sounds like they're playing next to each other in an empty bar. The sax reminds me of Stan Getz -- you can really hear the air moving.

Would you mind commenting on the recording/mixing of that tune?

Thank you!
Scott

The piano was at Robert's house and he wrote the tune on it so I took a mobil recording rig over there... There was no way the song would sound right on a properly maintained piano .. I did the recording in my Tom Waits style using a couple condenser mics in the top of the piano and a stereo ribbon back behind Robert in the room, his vocal was cut with the piano on and sm7 .. the sax was recorded in a studio with a c37a close and R88 room
