July Notable news.

Democracy in Dakar: African underground project is in full bloom. The movie has garnered awards and will be shown in Boston on Sunday July 8th at the paradise Rock club between Femi Kuti's sets this weekend. Also some of the rappers from the african underground project will be touring with the African Underground Allstars in NY, Boston and Providence later this month. One of the stars of the show Eli Efi (Brazil)and Partner DJ Laylo(NYC) were at Notable working on a track for their new album this month as well.

Producer Paul Heck of the Red Hot Series records asked Benny Beats and Notable Dan to contribute to his newest record featuring the songs of U2. We were lucky to get Rappers Chosan (Sierra Leone), Optimus (Liberia) from Foundation Movement and the wonderfully talented Singer/ Spoken word poet Iyeoka Ivie Okoawo(Nigerian-American) to work on a track.

Fat City finished up their newest CD  "Good Time Guaranteed" with Dan and some mastering help from Adam Rourke. Dan sends a big time thank you to Co- Producer Tom Hambridge for his musical wisdom and spirit during the tracking sessions. These guys have had a band for 30 years!  They know how to play the blues.

Jazz flutist Dominigue Gagne has handed notable her beautiful latin influenced Jazz album for some final tweaks before pressing.  Dominigue is currently on tour on the west coast with Singer/Songwriter Manisha Shahane who will be coming to Notable later this summer to have Dan produce some tracks for newest CD.

Guitarist Eric Hofbauer and Scott Barnum were in this month for some mixing and mastering of their jazz duet record. Originally recorded in a living room to two channels of a two track, this record has loads of amazing improvisation and mischief that only these two could create. My kudus to them for tracking at home.
