Never on Tuesday

ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
These guys work.

The Fat Fridays started in summer 2014 as a recording project; something that musicians could do on Monday afternoons without interfering with gigs. They recorded a few dozen favorite songs, often taken to very different musical places. The melodies are compelling, the performances are exciting, the grooves are undeniable. This is dance music for listening, perpetrated by top-notch, lifetime players and veteran performers; an ensemble simpatico, cooking up a toothsome stew of tuneage: jazz-infused rock, heartfelt blues, dashes of Louisiana funk and reggae; classic and messed-with versions of familiar songs, and forgotten gems.

Mark Dodge (guitar, lead vocals, keys, uke): veteran multi-instrumentalist and reformed road warrior, logged his 10,000 hours on stages from Deadwood to Honolulu, and now produces recordings at his Big Quack Records studio and performs with Swingnuts Jazz.

Andy Carr (keys, vocals): classically-trained jazz pianist, musical director, accompanist extraordinaire, vocalist, co-host of the Jazzvox house concert series, and enthusiastic performer who stays busy playing with TimE3Jazz, the A'Town Big Band, Tangoheart, and Swingnuts Jazz.

Thomas Kemper (drums): pro studio drummer and recordist, has played orchestral, disco, jazz, folk, and psychedelic rock, performs with avant-jazz ensemble Pocket Monkey, and appears on Big Quack Records by Steve Harris & Friends and One Ton of Ducks.

James Clark (bass, vocals): first-call Seattle-area bassist and alumnus of the Paul Allen Band and the hot Las Vegas music scene, has played with giants like Bo Diddley and the late, great Natalie Cole, and performs locally with Jimmy Wright and the uber-funky F3.

Notes

The aerial photographs of Washington's Skagit valley were taken just before tulip season began in 2015 by Mark, strapped into a Glacier Aviation helicopter with the doors removed.

Arrangements by Mark and The Fat Fridays; recording, mastering, and design by Mark; CD replication by Oasiscd.com; on-line distribution by CDBaby.com.

The studio setup evolved over time. There were recording errors on several sessions (such as individual tracks not recording properly). The result is a variety of sonic landscapes; collected here are the best performances, some with errors not heinous enough to warrant disqualification.

The track On Your Way Down (written by the late, great Allen Toussaint) was recorded at the first full session, in September of 2014.

The song I Walk on Gilded Splinters was on the first album by Dr. John the Night Tripper, entitled Gris Gris. I saw Doc perform this song, among others, at the Atlantic City Pop Festival in August of 1969. Doc also delivered an amazing performance of this song after he received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the televised 2003 Americana Awards ceremony. Look it up!

The song Who’ll Be the Next in Line:
- Was recorded at the last full session, in January of 2016
- Has a missing track (can you guess which?)
- Is one of two songs on the CD presented "as captured," live in the studio without overdubs. (The lead vocal was tracked using a Shure KSM9.)
- Not overdubbed, but edited: the first half of the song (before the first three-part vocal harmony break) is the very first studio take of the song, the rest of the song is the very last take.

P.S. I Love You is the other track on the CD that was recorded live without overdubs. (Lead vocal tracked using a Shure Beta 58A.) Lead vocals were overdubbed on all other tracks.

Here Comes the Big Parade was recorded as a trio with Andy, Thomas, and Mark on fretless bass. All other songs were tracked as a four-piece with Mark on guitar.
