Watch Herbie Hancock Meet Up With Trey Anastasio For A Memorable Jam Session In The Barn

first_imgThe Barn was a magical place. Trey Anastasio‘s custom studio in Vermont was used for many a Phish recordings in the late 90s and early 2000s, with the Trey Anastasio Band also taking up residency there to record their early albums. Other artists have also taken advantage of the serene settings that The Barn provides, with Béla Fleck, Toots & the Maytals, Umphrey’s McGee, John Medeski, Patty LaBelle, The Slip, and more all making the trek to the Green Mountains to record some tracks. With that in mind, The Barn has taken on a somewhat mythical vibe, as musicians know that it’s a place where they can get incredible musical results.Back in 2004, jazz icon Herbie Hancock did just that, as he journeyed to The Barn to record a song for his at-the-time forthcoming album. He brought along some true heavy hitters to add to the recording, as veteran jazz bassist John Pattituci, funky drummer Steve Jordan, and world-renowned percussionist (and original TAB member) Cyro Baptista joined Anastasio and trumpeter Jennifer Hartswick for an unforgettable jam session. Hancock and Anastasio are two of the most impressive improvisers on the planet, so this session would be one for the ages.Thankfully, there was a camera crew on hand at The Barn to capture this unique and impressive moment. The video showcases the process that went into the arrangement and recording process, with Anastasio and Hancock having several in-depth conversations about the style they were going for, using Hancock’s eclectic experience in the jazz world as a launching pad for several musical ideas. It’s an awesome video to watch, with so many musical masters creating a beautiful piece of music. Check out the video below, and also check out the final product, “Gelo Na Montanha” from Hancock’s 2005 album Possibilities.Watch Herbie Hancock and Trey Anastasio record “Gelo Na Montanha”, courtesy of YouTube user Joe RiouxListen to “Gelo Na Montnanha” by Herbie Hancock, featuring Trey Anastasio, John Pattituci, Steve Jordan, Cyro Baptista, and Jennifer Hartswick below, courtesy of YouTube user mandobanjoguitar.last_img read more

Golar LNG’s net loss deepens in second quarter

first_imgBermuda-based Golar LNG on Wednesday reported a net loss of $73.8 million for the second quarter of this year.The company’s operating revenues, however, shown a slight increase from $25.1 million in the first quarter to $28.4 million during the quarter under review.The shipping market remained relatively flat for most of the second quarter Golar LNG said, noting a pickup in utilization toward the end of the quarter which contributed to a small rise in time charter revenues that increased from $20.1 million in the first quarter to $24.0 million in the second quarter.Subsequent to the second quarter, and as anticipated, chartering activity has improved as some projects commence and ramp up production.Owner expectations are firming in response and this is contributing to a gradual recovery in shipping rates, the re-emergence of round trip economics and a widening bid-ask spread for 2018 fixtures, the company said.Whilst approximately 55 vessels are expected to deliver in 2017, the tonnage required to meet incremental production is greater. The disconnect between vessel deliveries and increasing LNG production is expected to positively widen in 2018, Golar LNG said.Looking forward, the predicted third quarter upturn in the shipping business is now underway and appears to be on a more sustainable footing. July 2017 represented the most active month for spot voyages on record.While the short term outlook for the company has been negatively influenced by the indicated 6-week delay to Hilli Episeyo start-up and financing delays in respect of the Fortuna FLNG project, Golar LNG said its long-term outlook has improved considerably.last_img read more
