Demo recordings, Blues Armada, Thomastik

Blues Armada is a function/jazz/blues band I play for, fronted by Luke Cannon, which recently recorded some demos at Soundworks in Leeds with our friend Ollie Norman. They’re being mixed and stuff at the moment, but here’s a preview of a couple of small band tunes. I used my Nordy VJ-4 strung with Thomastik-Infeld Jazz flatwounds — wonderful strings to play, not quite as hollow in the midrange as some flats, and I think they record very nicely. Loads of the fundamental, not many overtones and no string noise, so very good for supporting a band. Have a listen!

Joe Cox drums, Martin Longhawn pianos and organs, George Miller guitars.
