The Hazelrigg Brothers @ Tonal Park Studios
DCHFG house band, the Hazelrigg Brothers, played two outstanding sets of their custom melange of classical/jazz/pop cover songs on Saturday, April 28th at Takoma Park’s Tonal Park recording studios. Several DC Hi-Fi Group members attended and were enthralled by the ultimate in Hi-Fi sound as well as the inventiveness of the trio which also includes drummer John O’Reilly Jr. Their repertoire spans covers of ELP’s “In the Beginning” to interpretations of Ernest Bloch’s “Enfantines” (piano pieces for children). Other selections performed included, in George Hazelrigg description, “the great 20th century composer – Jimi Hendrix.”
The venue for the concert could not have been more perfect sonically as it took place literally in the studio at the wonderfully equipped Tonal Park Studios. Tonal Park proprietor, Charlie Pilzer, was very gracious in showing visitors the inner sanctum where many award winning music productions have been mastered including former Men At Work frontman Colin Hay.
George Hazelrigg (piano) commented that their debut album is selling very well and gaining significant radio play. They are also reaching an overseas market in Europe and the Far East. A follow up EP for Blue Coast Music is available in native DSD resolution which is the preferred recording format of the trio.
Thank you to both the Hazelrigg Brothers and Charlie Pilzer for a wonderful evening of music.
