  • Bruce Swedien Is in the House!

    Super-engineer Bruce Swedien (who's worked with Michael Jackson, Quincy Jones, Mick Jagger, Muddy Waters, B.B. King, George Benson, Sergio Mendez, Patti Austin, John Lee Hooker, Missing Persons, Duke Ellington, Nat King Cole, Sarah Vaughn, Jackie Wilson, Oscar Peterson, Barbra Streisand, the Chi-Lites, Buddy Miles, Lionel Hampton, Donna Summer, Count Basie, Stan Kenton, Lena Horne, Paul McCartney, Natalie Cole, Edgar Winter, and Woody Herman, and a zillion others) has been nominated for 13 Grammy Awards, and has won 5. He's also written the book "Make Mine Music," which has enough cool anecdotes to make a great read.

    But of greatest interest to the Harmony Central community, he's also waaay into forums, particularly this one! So, this thread is Bruce's virtual home where you can ask him questions, and where I've invited him to sound off on just about anything he wants. If all goes as planned, we'll venture out into creating more threads as time goes on.

    Bruce is a really nice guy who loves to record and listen to music. He's into the art of music and recording, and the emotional experience. He's one of those pros who's smart enough to know that he can learn a lot from those just starting out, but he's also extremely generous with his knowledge and time. He's a very very busy guy, but let's give him a nice warm welcome to the forum! Welcome back, Bruce!
    There are now 14 music videos posted on my YouTube channel, including four songs by Mark Longworth. Watch the music video playlist, subscribe, and spread the links! Check back often, because there's more to come...

                  Welcome back to the King Viking Gasser! Good to have you with us Bruce.

                  "The music business will be revitalized by musicians, not the labels or Live Nation. When the musicians decide to put music first, instead of money, the public will flock to the fruits and the scene will be healthy again."

                    When through the fog I saw the great wooden sailing vessel with the mighty dragon figurehead, I knew the most noble Viking had returned.

                    Welcome back, Bruce!
