The music and recording film that without a doubt you all need to see, is the Art Of Recording A Big Band with Al Schmitt and Steve Genewick that will be hitting the stores on the 22nd July 2016. Short of being in the studio with them this is as close as it gets to witnessing recording genius at work.
The idea was a simple one. Record a live big band, film it and at the same time have some paying guests in the studio control room to ask questions and try to get Al to give up some of the tips and tricks that have made him a 23 time Grammy Award winner.
Al and Steve decided to open the session up to some paying quests. One of the first to sign up was Andrew Scheps, later to be joined by Dave Pensado and Ryan Hewitt to name but a few.
The 22 piece band in question is that of German born Chris Walden (composer / arranger / conductor) himself a 6 time Grammy nominee and is made up of some of LA's top session musicians. The two day session was recorded at Capitol Studio A in Hollywood through their beautiful Neve 88R console.
