Enjoying a few days off now after the Mostly Jazz, Funk and Blues Festival in Birmingham, England, he and the band head back Friday to Little Big Beat Studios in Liechtenstein for four days of recording. Little Big Beat is the site of the band’s Studio Live Session last spring, the fruits of which are rolling out now, including a limited edition vinyl to be released this week.
