The String Session


Here’s a quick look at the string session. The song they’re working on here is “Hosanna”, and I have to say that I believe that Ben Shive has outdone himself. You should’ve heard these string players going on about how great the arrangements were, all the more amazed because Ben isn’t a string player.

Hope you like it.

    Musician talk: “I have a question for you. Is the forte a restrike, or is it a subito piano you’re looking for at 35?”

    My answer: “Oh, I dunno John, what do you think? Can you do both?”

    Ben gets five stars just for being able to understand what those guys are saying. 🙂 Isn’t that John Catchings pretty much a rock star when it comes to session musicians? I see his name in liner notes everywhere.
