Jeff Marsh on JCM Musicians' Recording Session for Kids vs Monsters

Thursday, February 12, 2015

From Jeff Marsh regarding the film recording session: Yesterday was an amazing day. The musicians exceeded my expectations. I prepared 11 pieces expecting to record maybe 8, but we recorded all 11 pieces and we made an additional cue out of a section of 1m3. So we really got 12 pieces and did not go into overtime. Plus, we took generous breaks. No doubt you are as proud of your kids as I am. Thank you for bringing them and allowing me to share this experience with them.   Read More . . .
