With no gigs with bands due to busy schedule from work, had squeezed in some time to do collaboration work with Ace Agamata, lawyer by day, musician by night. Drawing blues as an influence to his compositions, arrangement of these tunes were recorded at Skunk Studios in an acoustic live setup, impromptu with a freeway jam of feel, with little overdubs for the harmonica part and some solos.
We finished two of his original songs, ‘Anything’ which was inspired by a Stevie Ray Vaughan song, and the election themed 12 bar blues jam ‘Eleksyon na Naman’ (in English, ‘Election Time Once Again’) which was about what people should do on the recently concluded 2013 elections here.
