I'm listening to the mastered Tribecastan CD.  I can't thank you enough.  Everything about the finished product reflects your mastery.  You took stuff from a mediocre studio and transformed it into something beautiful.  You are simply gifted and I can't thank you enough.

"Just Say Hi"

Spent yesterday with Gene Paul mastering my new record. What an amazing set of ears! I look forward to seeing him every time I make a record because I learn so much about music and sound in an afternoon with Gene.

We had some other people do some mastering for us to use for promos, but the concept of the record eluded them.  So I guess you could understand why I felt I hit the lottery when I heard your version.  I'm not sure what you did, but the CD sounds huge, smooth, warm and detailed.  You have the best ears!  Thanks for sharing them with us!

"The Subject Tonight Is Love"

"Having worked with Gene Paul on my previous two big band recordings, and then having had him remaster my prior past big band recordings, I came back again for “The Thompson Fields.” Gene did an incredible job. He’s always got the “emotion” of the music first in his mind, and he knows how to make the music leap from the speakers to create a world, not simply well-recorded sound. He spins magic, working with an enthusiasm that seems so rare these days. I feel so blessed to get to work with Gene. I tend to press everyone to the limits when I make a record, but Gene was there with patience and enthusiasm every step of the way.

Thank you, Gene!!!!"
