Ever since he was given a disc recorder by his father at the tender age of ten, Bruce Swedien has known what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. The list of people that he has worked with is too long to list, but when one mentions musicians like Count Basie, Duke Ellington, Oscar Peterson, Sarah Vaughan, Eddie Harris, Quincy Jones, Jennifer Lopez, and even Michael Jackson in his “Thriller” days, a great deal is immediately understood.
In this book, Swedien generously gives away detailed information from his lifetime in the studio, from musical, personal and technical angles. This is a book that can easily be read by anyone interested in music. The content will appeal to those interested in the stories behind some of the best music to ever come out of the recording studio.
