‘Straight Down’ was inspired by Phil’s admiration of the Blue Note recordings of the 1950’s. A band meeting in the recording studio, calling some tunes and playing in a live situation. So that’s what the band did, after choosing the tunes from their recent live repertoire (over a cup of strong coffee), went straight into recording. No overdubs, tracks captured in one take, and nothing overly produced.
