late Summer of 2013, Taz Taylor, Val Trainor,
Barney Firks and Josh Weinstein entered Blitz
Recording Studios in San Diego Ca with intent!
With Richard Blitz Livoni at the production
helm they set about creating the best Taz
Taylor Band album yet.
With just about the right amount of rehearsal
time behind them the music was still fresh,
edgy where it needed to be, and poised and
polished where it needed to be! With no click
track or other "modern" recording
technologies they formed a circle and threw
down the grooves the old school way.
Two and a half days is all it took to capture the performances of
the whole band, with Taz' Guitar Solos and
some Keyboard embellishments by Josh being
the only overdubs... performed several weeks
later after the tracks had had time to sit
and while the band had busied themselves in
the meantime with live performances.
The result is an eight song all-instrumental
album. An album that truly represents the
vision of TTB.
At the core of the band Taz Taylor and Val
Trainor are still doing what they do best.
Having worked together now since 2006 including
two European tours and two studio albums (Straight
Up and Big Dumb Rock)!
Deja Voodoo marks the recording debut in the band of Bassist Barney
Firks who joined TTB in July 2010 and Keyboardist
Josh Weinstein who joined in June 2012.
Deja Voodoo is the first TTB album to feature a lineup that has
existed for some time and has been performing
live shows - every other TTB album having
been recorded after the band had reached a
crossroads of some kind, leaving Taz and Val
to start over with a new lineup and a new
That band synergy can be heard and felt in
the tracks on Deja Voodoo!
The CD is wrapped in stunning artwork by none
other than Tristan Greatrex... creator of
the original MSG logo as well as many MSG
and UFO CD and DVD covers.
