Congratulations to Lynda Carter! She received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame today. I did some arranging for Lynda's Portrait album in 1978. She was a very pleasant and sweet person to work with. Here's one of the tracks:…

HEAT shared Arno Haas's video.
February 12


Today marks the one-year anniversary of Al’s passing and it’s a sad day for all of us. In remembrance of Al, we are sharing a post from our friend Arno Haas. The video below was filmed during the recording of the song Lucky Chance from Arno’s album Back To You. Arno and I wrote the song. I produced this album for Arno during the summer of 2015. This may be the last pop song that Al recorded before he passed. Everyone involved in this project had a great time and many laughs were had as is apparent in the video. I particularly enjoy watching Al crack jokes toward the end of the video. We miss you Al.

Well, it's been a while! I hope everyone is healthy and doing well as we approach the end of yet another year! I'm going to be posting some horn arrangements that I did for other artist as well as some that I participated on as a player. This one is from Rahsaan Patterson's first LP and if I remember correctly, was his first hit! It's called "My Sweetheart!" The horns are a bit buried for my taste but you know what they say about opinions.😁 They still had an impact on the sound of the record. Enjoy!
