Just got this link to the song I cut with Chuck Rainey. Not a full motion vid, but lots of nice pics of the players, and there's something to at least (hopefully) make Mike Martin smile smile
If anyone's curious, it's real piano, real B, but the Wurly is Acoustic Samples, the horns are NI Session Horns, and the synth stuff was (I think) either Signal or Alchemy (or both)'

Killin' Steve. You came up on my FB page this week playing with one of Guy Eckstine's artists. I'm friends with his sister, Gina, who use to sing around town in the 80's/90's...

They met somewhere and hit it off. Talked about working together some way, so Mike went home and started writing the song. Bass Player mag heard about it and got involved.
Since Mike played the melody and Chuck played the track "bottom", it worked out well with both of them live.

Looks like a great bunch of guys and sounds like playing with them was a pleasure. This is what it's all about. What's your impression of Sony Tree studios? Are they recording to analog? ProTools?

In the 80's I did a project with engineer/producer Chris Huston in SoCal. He talked about doing a lot of sessions for Atlantic Records with Chuck Rainey at Talent Masters Studio in NYC. The Young Rascals recorded their Groovin' album there and it was Chris that brought Chuck in to play on that record after guitarist Gene Cornish had attempted to play the Bass parts. He became The Rascals main studio Bass player after that.

ProTools most of the time.

Yes, that's my Casio PX5S. I use it all the time as a controller for my laptop rig.

Thanks for sharing.
There seems to be some signature-like economy of motion in the way Chuck moves his hands and arms. I had somewhat noticed it on the "Classic Albums" video that covered the making of "Aja". Seeing it again on this video made it more noticeable to me.

I will listen in a bit, but Lord, Chuck Rainey is one of the greatest bass players of all time. He was the next great player after the King himself - James Jamerson.
I am happy he is still with us... and I am sure you rocked on this track.
