This first installment of AEA’s Live From The Shipping Room features trumpet player, Gabriel Johnson, double bassist, Lyman Medeiros, and pianist Jeff Babko, playing Gabriel Johnson’s original compositions entitled ‘Sketches.'
Johnson aims to convey three central themes in his music: simplicity, effectiveness, and impact. “If you can feel what we’re playing then we’re successful.”
“After all the work we do as musicians,” Johnson relates, “to get the sound we can – the best statement – there’s not really any reason for us to record. But when you get on the right microphone and if it’s telling you the actual sound you’ve been working for, then you are really lucky.”
Trumpet: AEA A440 - AEA RPQ2 Preamp
Double Bass: AEA KU4 - AEA RPQ2 Preamp
Piano: 3 x AEA N22 - AEA RPQ2 Preamp
Room: R88 - AEA RPQ2 Preamp
Gabriel Johnson plays a 1956 Martin Committee Large Bore trumpet and uses a 1930s era New York Bach #3 mouthpiece.
“Live From The Shipping Room”, the latest collaborative effort of director Alex Chaloff and AEA melds music and art into a monochrome tapestry, articulated by AEA mics and preamps.
This new series weaves live performances of AEA’s favorite artists with interviews about their distinct style and sound and their quest to capture that sound. All the episodes are shot in AEA’s shipping room, which doubles as a finely tuned studio, designed by Ken Fause.
