Los Hacheros- Pilon
No doubt this will go down as one of the finest records ever made at the Creamery – in 3 days- just like olden times! Disclaimer aside, I love this band and this record. I went to see them play the first time last winter in Chinatown at this same speakeasy where this music video was shot. I was floored by the performance and when the multi-tallented producer (and Tres player), Jacob Plasse, asked if I would record and mix the band on a shoestring in 3 days- how could I say no? Take a look at the other post “Cuban Tapes” for a little behind the scenes footage. I wanted to capture the spirit of the room and the feel of the old cuban songs they play. We even got a party going over here at the end of the session to keep the song and dance alive. Thanks Los Hacheros- you make recording an old time cuban record seem easy!
