BLAKE MILLS - HEIGH HO - Vinyl New

Format: Vinyl>New

Verve

Vinyl LP pressing. 2014 album from the California-based singer/songwriter. Recorded in Los Angeles at the legendary Ocean Way studios in a room built for Frank Sinatra and used by everyone from Bob Dylan to Ray Charles, Mills created an album that references a range of genres without really belonging to any. To that end, Mills asked several of his musical heroes - including Jim Keltner, Don Was, Jon Brion, Benmont Tench, Mike Elizondo, and Fiona Apple to collaborate on what would become HEIGH HO. "Blake arranged the music the way that Czanne would've filled a canvas," Don Was notes of his experience playing in Blake's band. "He is a mind-blowingly great artist with the type of deep vision that is the hallmark of true genius. It's so inspiring for musicians to play with a cat like that! If he asked US to play in orange, we wanted to give him a shade that burned so brightly as to blind the unsuspecting."
