Recording at Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage

Had a thrilling week in the studio with Barbra Streisand. We recorded at Sony Studios on the Barbra Streisand Scoring Stage. I do a lot of work on this stage but it's not often you get to record with the person the scoring stage is named for.

This is my fifth album I've had the pleasure of working on with Barbra and she sounds as beautiful as ever. We got to play the exquisite arrangements of Bill Ross under his baton with the brilliant Walter Afanasieff producing. The entire group of LA musicians sound gorgeous on these arrangements.  It was a true thrill.
