This photo was taken at Lee Ritenour’s recording session for his album Smoke ‘n Mirrors @ Sunset Sound in Hollywood January 2003.  The first big session I got to work at.  I spent 4 days printing and taping charts and rubbing shoulders with some of the greatest musicians of our time.  Not a bad first session, right?!  I remember telling my teachers (not asking) that I would be gone for the next days so I could work these sessions.  Pretty much the best reason ever for a young music student to skip class.  And yeah, I still have (and wear) that track jacket.


Make sure to check out Lee Ritenour’s site.  He’s got a new new album in the works you don’t want to miss.
