Morph wins an award

Donald Fagen's Morph The Cat

This past Friday, October 6, Donald Fagen's Morph The Cat took home one of the awards at the 22nd TEC Awards.
Held in San Francisco TEC stands for "Technical Excellence & Creativity". The awards is - according to the official site - "the foremost program recognizing the achievements of audio professionals. Presented annually by the Mix Foundation for Excellence in Audio, the TEC Awards honor the individuals, companies and technical innovations behind the sound of recordings, films, TV shows and live performances.

TEC Awards nominations are made by a panel of industry professionals and voted upon by the subscribers of Mix, the leading trade magazine of the recording and sound production industry."

Morph competed in the category Record Production/Album and beat the other nominees:

Late Registration Kanye West.
Back Home Eric Clapton.
Good Night and Good Luck-soundtrack Dianne Reeves.
Timeless Sergio Mendes.

The award goes to Recording Engineer, Mixing Engineer, Mixing Facility, Producer, Recording Studio, Mastering Engineer and Mastering Facility. Which means the following people and places:

Recording Engineer: Elliot Scheiner, Brian Montgomery, T. J. Doherty.
Mixing Engineer: Elliot Scheiner.
Producer: Donald Fagen.
Mastering Engineer: Darcy Proper.
Mixing Facility: Avatar Studios, NYC.
Mastering Facility: Sony Mastering, NYC.
Recording Studios: Avatar Studios, Clinton Recording Studios, Sear Sound, NYC, Sugar Sound, Kauai, HI.

No pics of any of the above Morph-people on the Awards site, but seeing as Elliot was there giving an award away, I suspect he collected Donald's together with his own and ducked back into a studio somewhere.
