Jim Pavett engineered and recorded songs for the album Beyond Words, which has received a nomination for Best New Age Album by the Recording Academy.
A collaboration of artists Gentle Thunder, Will Clipman and AmoChip Dabney, the majority of the tracks were recorded at Pavett's Allusion Studios in Tucson, AZ. Beyond Words is an eclectic blend of grand hammer dulcimer, Native American flutes, drums, bass, soprano sax, piano and percussion. The album was written and performed spontaneously live in the studio in 2005. After the main structure was captured, other instruments were layered on top of their performances.
The 49th Annual GRAMMY Awards will be held on Sunday, Feb. 11, at Staples Center in Los Angeles and will be broadcast live in high-definition TV and 5.1 surround sound on CBS from 8 - 11:30 p.m.
