Blake’s Heaven Big Band came to SAE for a recording session with me. We recorded 4 tracks, and this is one of them.

They are an 18 piece big band, and for me this was the first time that I had managed a session of this scale. Creating enough separation between the various sections proved challenging as all of the musicians wanted to be in the same live room. However, I was able to use the polar patterns on the microphones to my advantage.
