Album artwork for Monterey b/w Straight Love Affair by Nick Waterhouse

“Monterey” is a ‘lost’ track from the song book of Nature Boy himself, Eden Ahbez. There existed only a demo acetate recording of a member (John Harris) of the cult Los Angeles doo-wop group the Rivingtons, which made its way to Waterhouse's ears via Matt Correia (Allah-las). In a way, it feels divined to have been delivered to him by these means. Cut at the historic Western 2 studios in Hollywood, and played with such esteemed and familiar musical company - the rhythm section of Brian Lang on bass and Eric Jackowitz on drums, pianist Lee Pardini, second guitar John Anderson, and lead tenor saxophonist Mando Dorame. Pay close attention to the undertow pull as the band crests and the pre-solo bars drop into Mando’s loamy lead.
