Scott Wilkie “All In”

Scott Wilkie All In
Just finished mixing a very nice CD for keyboardist Scott Wilkie. It’s a contemporary jazz CD featuring lots of luminaries including Jay Beckenstein, Jimmy Haslip, Jay Graydon, Paul Jackson Jr., Vinnie Colaiuta, Jeff Kashiwa, and more.

Available (of course) at Amazon and iTunes.

The movie from Seth MacFarlane is out now, as is the score CD. Really fantastic, dead-ernest classic western score from Joel McNeely.

We recorded for about a week at Sony Scoring in Culver City with 95 of LA’s finest, plus a pickup session at Fox’s Scoring Stage. True to form for Joel, the entire score was recorded by the orchestra all in the room together; no overdubs, no striping, with Joel Conducting. The Bluegrass/Small Group cues were recorded at The Bridge in Glendale with a stellar band featuring George Doering, Dean Parks, Trey Henry, Victor Indrizzo, and the incredible Noam Pikelny and Gabe Witcher from the Punch Brothers.

Proud to have been a part of this; Can’t say enough about Seth’s desire and support for a classic old-school score featuring a *great* large orchestra playing music together in a great room. Had so much fun doing this.

There’s a score CD for this which is well worth getting, and I believe there will be a “Deluxe” version that will feature a few extra cues. Worth going to the theatre for this just to listen to the score!
