“Howden and I got together in April of 2022 in between one of my busy touring schedule to work at our buddy’s studio in Bastrop, the same studio that we used for parts of the Glimlip Twelve Chapters album. We spent 2 days there and cranked out 8 projects, 2 which were solo piano pieces by Howden himself. Since I was touring so much during 2022, this was such a nice release to get to work on some original music with one of my close friends in the same studio where we made some great recordings in the past.”Clifford
Clifford of Slug & Howden of Soul Food Horns got together for this warm jazz beats gem called “Noodle”.
Recorded in a studio in Bastrop (where Glimlip’s acclaimed Twelve Chapters album was also made), in-between live shows during a busy touring schedule, the song was part of a little oasis of creativity when they could sit down and work on their own music.
