The Last Session

Sir George Martin died. :-(

I wrote about the famed Beatles producer's career in a post for his ninetieth birthday this past January, and I pretty much summed up his importance to the music world and the wonderful innovations in arranging and production he pioneered.  I don't think there's any more I can say at this moment, except that the recording profession's greatest producers owe a debt to Sir George for expanding horizons in recorded music and his absence will be felt for a long, long time.  Because, in this age of digital record production, where all anyone does is punch in numbers to create a sound, we're not likely to see another producer like this fifth Beatle, Sir George Martin, any more than we're likely to see another Beatles. And the door to Abbey Road Studios, where Sir George worked, just got a little more darkened. RIP. :-(
