Ludovic Iochem returns to help fxphd build a full digital matte painting curriculum. Today, matte painters need to know a lot of various techniques. They're often involved in shots that require some 3D or 2,5D technique, and it's definitely a plus if they can manage to do all of this by themselves. But the base of the work is still the painting one which happens in Photoshop.
An album led by guitarist Rick Laird, but a set that's probably equally noteworthy for the presence of tenorist Joe Henderson on a few tracks – who really shines here in an overlooked late 70s session! The core group is great enough – as Laird has these round, classic jazz guitar tones that slide in with soulful beauty next to the piano and Fender Rhodes of Tom Grant – and when Henderson's not around, Grant's solos are especially great – and really have this lyrical power that grabs us right away, and almost makes us forget the presence of Joe! But then Henderson comes back with that subtle edge of his – similar to his playing on the Mirror Mirror record – a raspy tone that really deepens the whole proceedings. Henderson produced the record, and plays on the tracks "Outer Serge" and "Tranquility".
