Our Music

This shot was taken during a break in the recording of Burning Spears Our Music CD at  Magic Hat studio in New York City. Drummer Horsemouth Wallace is reading the paper while Donovan McKitty warms up before laying down some new tracks. Being in the studio is pretty boring sometimes since there can be a lot of down time, not to mention hearing the same track over and over and over a hundred times. It is during the down time when you can get some of the best shots, musicians being themselves just hanging out and relaxing and waiting for their turn to play. The process of making music is still pretty intriguing despite the boredom, being able to hear the building up of a song from start to finish is really fascinating. I have shot a number of sessions over the years  it’s always interesting to see how people work, specially in this case when it’s someone like the great Burning Spear. I will be posting more from this session later, so stay tuned.
