I recorded Justin’s vocals on the Rick Rubin-produced album closer, “(Another Song) All Over Again.” I’ll never forget that session for two reasons: 1) because Justin KILLED it, vocally, and is hilarious and fun to work with; and 2) because I had to endure several ridiculous computer issues while keeping the session running smoothly. The computer screen (or video card) all the sudden decided to show only purple and green colors, making it impossible to read input meters or much of anything for that matter in Pro Tools. Fun times! We actually did have a great time in spite of the technical snafus. Phew. I was amazed by Justin’s singing, songwriting, piano chops, and positive attitude. Working with drummer James Gadson and members of Bill Withers’ band was unforgettable as well.
