I recorded 2 albums with Frank Macchia’s ‘Swamp Thang’ in 2011-12. Almost all of the tracks were recorded at my studio in North Hollywood. Frank’s previous albums featured Vinnie Colaiuta, and Peter Erskine on drums.. so yeah, I was slightly nervous. The musical concept was Dr. John meets Frank Zappa. So, there are second line grooves in 5/4 etc. Really fun, and we played some exceptional gigs. The last one at Vitello’s was a lot of fun. Great musicians, people, and Frank is a generous leader.
