Hi All:

It's been an exciting summer so far! I'm not even sure where to begin...

MORE JGMP NEWS

Recently we did the soundtrack mix for "Limbo" by filmmaker Jörg Fockele, as well as recording the music cues, penned by Laurie Lewis of In-Common Music.

We recently recorded VO's on an ad for the current MoMA exhibition: "Home Delivery: Fabricating the Modern Dwelling" (Paradoxal.net). Also, chef Michael Symon's VO's for the Food Network show "Dinner: Impossible" (Shooters Inc.)

Ellen Woloshin continues to put the finishing touches on the vocals for her upcoming CD, also being recorded and produced by the awesomely talented Kevin Bents.

Songwriter Nick Hammond was in to record additional guitars and remix the already smoking CJ Vanston arrangement of his song "Save it for a Rainy Day", featuring vocals by Chesney Hawkes.

My old friend and colleague Steve Dwire reports the following:

"Producer Steve Dwire recorded 3 tracks at Jon Gordon Production for former Ms. Teen Sweden, Sara Varga's debut album, "Faith Hope & Love" distributed through Universal Music. Musicians for these sessions were Tony Levin, bass, Jerry Marotta, drums and percussion, Robbie Kondor, keyboards, Larry Saltzman, guitars and San Francisco singer/songwriter Mike Brayton background vocals. Steve produced, arranged and played additional keyboards, while Jon Gordon engineered, mixed, mastered and contributed additional guitar."

Recent mastering projects include: "Hell and High Water" a haunting set of traditional and modern fiddle tunes and songs by fiddler Bill Christophersen. Also "Come Dance With Us" By The First Wave, featuring keyboardist Rob Schwimmer and singer Teresa Williams, recorded and mixed by Lincoln Schliefer.

We are also expecting drummer Tommy Igoe and engineer Sean McClintock, for a two day lockout to finalize the mixes for Tommy's new title for Hudson Music.


FOR NERDS ONLY SECTION

Actually, there is no nerdy news this time out. But I've grown fond of the section, and hope to expand it in the future. In the meantime, here's a nerd quiz: What does "ROTFLMAO" mean?


BRAZEN PLUG SECTION

We are always interested in new recording projects! We can provide a wide range of music production related services, both creative and technical, and can tailor our approach to your needs. Studio tours, consultations, budget estimates, etc. are available free, on request.

Hope to see you soon!

Jon
