"This Production was re-orchestrated by Bruce Monroe, but closely resembles the 2011 Broadway revival orchestrations. Originally, I was going to use my jazz kit which is smaller and drier and tuned with less sustain but once I got into rehearsals I realized a richer, fuller sound was required in order to achieve a classic 'Hollywood Soundtrack', Big Band sound. I did my best to tune the toms deep with a medium decay in order to replicate that movie sound I was hearing, with the snare tuned with lots of snare sound, and a crisp attack. Not having played on any soundtracks myself, I relied heavily on my own ear, and the ears of our sound department.

This is essentially a Big Band book, with a lot of 'kicking' Swing figures, mixed with classic Broadway 2-beat patterns. There were several indications to 'fill', and I tried very hard to keep it simple and set up the brass the best I could. If you are new to this sort of playing, I suggest listening to recordings by Les Brown, or Count Basie from the Late 50’s, early 60’s for sound inspiration. This a very straight-forward show, and a fun opportunity to use those Big Band chops you developed back in the day!

This show includes classic songs like 'Brotherhood of Man' and 'I Believe in You.'"

"It hasn’t always been easy (and it’s certainly very odd right now!) but personally I’ve always enjoyed the challenge. I’ve heard a few things along the way that have informed how I’ve thought about New York City and the idea of 'making it'”.

"The musical experience of recording a Broadway cast album ranges from easy to difficult depending on the circumstances. I find that the two factors that contribute most to the quality of the experience are: 1) how good the band is; and 2) how soon after you started the show you record the album"

"When I was preparing to conductNice Work if You Can Get It, I began by watching a video of the conductor and marking my score with any cues or beat patterns that were not obvious to me. I wanted to be completely comfortable with the Musical Directors choreography before watching the video of the stage and trying to put the music to the action of the actors and dancers."
