The track playing was recorded by Jake at a live gig in Thame, Oxfordshire. This track and 11 others performed by Paul Vernon Chester & Nick Mellor are available on the Fret Records CD "Duets for Django" (FJCD120)

With over 30 years of practical experience in recording, editing and mastering for commercial releases I specialize in Multi-track recording, Digital mixing and CD mastering using the latest technology.

I have a fully equipped digital studio based in Oxfordshire and can provide on-site recording using some of the best microphones available anywhere.

Results are everything - let your ears be the judge!

- Quality costs, but not always as much as you might expect!

I have a vast range of experience which covers: playing, engineering, production and the use of analogue and digital recording equipment. Having specified and built 2 commercial recording studios I also have my own superb dedicated studio and editing facility. I continue to play live and also work on sessions. In addition I have extensive live recording experience and can produce ‘Red Book’ mastered CD’s for release….along with graphics.
