Baker’s Brew – ready to take the stage at The Main theater in Santa Clarita. Baker’s Brew is an experimental ambient jazz quartet based in Los Angeles, California. The group is led by drummer Maury Baker whose performing/recording credits include Janis Joplin, Tim Buckley, Frank Zappa and many many others. Jim Goetsch does double duty on keyboards and soprano sax. Daniel Coffeng transcends all musical genres on guitar. Carl Royce on contrabass and electronics.
I use a pair of (discontinued) Digitech Jamman Delay looping pedals; one for the bass amp and one in stereo to a pair of modified Peavey Pacer amps. In addition to looping, the Jamman Delay has a programmable choice of three digital delay effects (!). It has 24-bit A/D/A conversion at 44.1 kHz.
The white pedal is a Dunlop Bass Wah which I use mostly as a subtle ‘filtering’ effect.
The ABY box serves to switch back and forth between the bass amp and the Peavey Pacers. This allows me to float arco improvisations in the high range over a looped bass ostinato pattern.
The Boss Stereo Reverb pedal adds depth and color.
Industrial Velcro holds it all together.
Stephen Foster and Friends.
I use an Epifani T112 cab with a class-D Genz Benz Contour 500 head for bass. For thumb-position arco improvisation I switch to a pair of modified solid state Peavey Pacer guitar amps (only one shown here). The Pacers are placed apart on stage in order to project effects in stereo.
The Peavey Pacer came out in the mid 1980s. It’s light-weight, very loud, and features spring reverb.
Two car garage? No, it is a woodshed.
Some thoughts and observations:
She didn’t want the bunny to catch on fire.
Children are the future.
10,000 hours to mastery.
