This CD contains 13 mostly instrumental tracks that feature Richard’s tasty guitar explorations of genres ranging from Jazzy Rock to Electronic Orchestral. Much of the music on Phenomenation originated as cues from various film and media projects that Richard worked on as a composer. The cues were further developed into complete compositions by adding new sections and culminated with bringing in a few of Richard’s talented musician friends to breath extra life into the tracks.
All music was recorded and mixed at Pearl Music Studios in Hollywood, CA
The list of featured musicians includes Mike Ruiz on drums, Chalo Eduardo on percussion, Chi Coltrane and Martin Paulk on vocals, Greg Goggins on soprano sax and flute, Graham Dorsey on tenor and baritone sax, Greg Emler on trumpet and flugelhorn. Also, Tim Gaines played fretless bass, and Karen Childs played piano on “Who You Are”.
The CD was mastered by Gavin Lurrsen at the Mastering Lab.
