Directing a band on a live show – Part 2

Here is part 2 of a series of songs to give you a look inside an industry showcase show in Los Angeles we did with VV Brown in 2010 for Capitol Records. I was the Musical Director as well as playing bass, and was responsible for the programming, hiring the band, directing the show, arranging the horns and generally developing the concept for her music live. We were in the early stages of developing the live show, and also had a live horn section for this gig. Questions in the forum on these videos are not just welcomed but encouraged!
