There's an article in today's Wall Street Journal about the possible sale of Abbey Road and potentially being turned into a museum rather than remain an active studio. Interesting discussion of how much a great room can play in a great recording (the long gone 30th Street studio. Also mentioned are Sun, Capitol, Motown, and The Record Plant. To which list you could certainly add Ardent. Worth reading (not sure if you'll be able to read this online if you're not a subscriber so you may have to go to a newsstand). By the way, Ardent co-founder and subsequent founder of Federal Express Frederick Smith had an op-ed piece in the WSJ recently about how to get the economy going again. Made total sense but I'm sure those in power in DC would never dream of consulting someone with a proven track record of growing business and creating jobs.

Hi Bruce
I agree with your comments about how a room affects a recording. In the same way how the Cedar Walton concert today was so much better in the intimacy of that small hall. Thanks for doing such a great job with all the acts. And by the way, I'm the person who yelled the loudest when you gave the score of 2 to 1 for Canada. Sorry you lost but glad we won. Looking forward to the last 2 concerts.
