Alejandro Escovedo Orchestra

Austin, TX

March 20, 2009

Mike Thompson:
Recently I re-discovered this recording of the Alejandro Escovedo Orchestra at SXSanJose
What I had was the rough mix, which I sent to my friend in New York to see what he could do with it.
This is different from any other version(s) that may be out there. If I remember correct,
the recording that was up on LMA is an audience recording done by, I believe, a taper I hooked up named Drew Falconieri.
It is definitely an upgrade and has not been available before now.

It was the first time the Orchestra of this size and magnitude had been put together in a very long time.
I'm real proud of the work I contributed to make this happen, and I immediately thought of you when I received it.
