The Art of Music

I bumped into this video just now and have to share it. It’s a revealing piece of work by the late Haskell Wexler. The whole thing grows out of happenstance. True art strong and free.

Behind the music: My old friend Mike and I used to grab our guitars and sit on his steps in front of the school and dream of being stars. But he went off to California and studied recording and he’s been working with boards and monitors and diffusers and cables and switches ever since. There are many (unsung) heroes working behind the front lines and this film introduces us to some of them. Some.

Neil Young-Haskell Wexler – Teatro Session 2015

The Teatro project refers to Neil’s album The Monsanto Years recorded at the Teatro Theater in Oxnard California. Great Rolling Stone story talking about different things mentioned in the above film – link. More related/unrelated stuff – link.
