The Blackwing Sessions: Christian Tamburr
Today, Studio 602 at Pencils.com is proud to introduce our first Blackwing Featured Musician and the inaugural episode of The Blackwing Sessions, a series that will showcase how using a Blackwing pencil inspires art and facilitates the creative process.
Blackwing Sessions with Christian Tamburr
Christian Tamburr is one of the world’s most accomplished multi-instrumental jazz musicians, best known for his skills with the vibraphone. He was named “Outstanding Solo Jazz Performer” by Downbeat Magazine and has toured and performed with legendary musicians including Dave Brubeck, Ira Sullivan and Matt Wilson. He has even played privately for the likes of such larger than life stars as Michael Jordan and Julia Roberts. We spent an afternoon in the studio with Christian and his band while they recorded their most recent album “Places.” The entire record was composed and arranged by hand using a Palomino Blackwing 602 pencil, including Christian’s original composition “Sailing Serenity” which he plays and discusses in our first edition of Blackwing Sessions.
