Last Friday night one of the area’s premier jazz clubs was converted into a makeshift recording studio – complete with a Grammy-winning sound engineer behind the huge mixing board that straddled at least two tables at Justin’s Savoy Room.

If you were at Justin’s in Albany last Friday night, you probably noticed the white-haired gentleman crouched over the over-sized mixing board. While jazz guitar master Ron Petrides was firing up his six-string alongside dynamic Castleton drummer David Calarco and bassist extraordinaire John Menegon, engineer Malcolm Cecil was busy recording and filming the evening’s musical magic for an upcoming live DVD release.

This Saturday night, Cecil will take off his headphones, pick up his bass and step into the spotlight to join Petrides and cellist Garfield Moore as they kick off the 2010 concert season at the Sand Lake Center for the Arts in Averill Park. The trio calls themselves SuperStringz.

But that’s only the latest chapter in the long and revolutionary musical career of London-born Malcolm Cecil.
