The script is based on a trail through the city of Chicago, looking for its citizens, the habits of its people and its music. It's a long way which will lead us to the mythical route 66 to take up a new trip to other adventures...
"Welcome to Chicago EP" is the presentation of what will be later released as an LP called "Urban Concepts".
This EP is a tribute to blues. Chicago, the “Windy City” is the most important point of reference when talking about blues. But its influence does not end with this style, rock n roll, funky, soul, jazz and even hip-hop are a significant part of the urban musical culture of this city. This mixing of cultural and musical trends is clearly reflected in the album Urban Concepts.
While recording, several guitars were used, two Fender (Stratocaster American standard and Stratocaster american vintage commemorative 1957) and one Gibson (Les Paul American standard). The amplifiers used were Marshall plexi 1959 slp, Mesa Boogie Lonestar and Vox ac30. Samples and different effects (fuzz, reverb, echo, etc... ) were made with a Korg Electribe SX.
