Recording session with Ken Burns

There was everything from hymns to traditional new orleans music to new original compositions to salvation army style brass chorales to Stephen Foster songs.
The studio was buzzing with the great Geoff Ward (who wrote the fabulous script) to Lynn Novick (producer par excellence) to Sarah Botstein who keeps it all running smoothly.

Kenny Barron, George Mraz, and Ben Riley were in another room doing a trio record (with Todd Barken producing) and Harry Connick was also in the house.
On a break I also recorded some solos on an excellent Harry’s arrangement of “Who Can I Turn To”.

From 2 to 11pm.
It was a swinging and full day
