When it came time to settle on a group to score our feature film, Sayonara to Hello, it was quite a challenge. We wanted a sound that was classic but not retro. A group that could play many styles and create the emotional feel of a road movie with very unique characters. After listening to many groups and musician’s, the answer was right in front of us. The Doug Largent Organ Trio!
Doug and his trio play regularly in my neck of the woods and it’s easy to hear why. They are exceptional musicians.
Doug and his friends, Brad Maiani and TJ Maiani, gave this film the mood, groove and ambiance we needed. Not only that, they went way beyond out initial request and elevated our film to a new level.
We’ll post a video of them recording part of the score soon, so you can see and hear these cats in action.
