Paul called Ben and explained that Paul had just dropped a bunch of money on a very nice ribbon microphone. Ben was itching to record with it. The rest of Gato was unavailable due to familial obligations. The first two tracks are just the melody from When Sunny Gets Blue, played w the same setup but on two different mics for the sax. The difference is palpable. Ben setup two SM57s pointed directly at the piano body and panned them far left and far right. Paul and Ben had not played most of these songs together prior to this recording session. Paul did not bring his flute, which was unfortunate.
