“We are tremendously excited to have a group of this stature participating in a single AES event,” Smith says. “The range of their work encompasses iconic hits for artists ranging from John Lennon to Aerosmith, Whitney Houston and Jay-Z. These superstar engineer/producers represent the best of the best.”

Jack Douglas: An undisputed legend, Jack Douglas had a long, and close association with John Lennon. Working in NYC’s fabled Record Plant he engineered the classic Imagine album, considered one of the most influential recordings of the last century. In 1980 he completed the Grammy of the Year Double Fantasy album, just weeks before John was murdered. Douglas went on to work with such giants as Supertramp, Guns N’ Roses and Miles Davis. He remains at the top of his game today, with current projects for the Michael Monroe Band and many other contemporary hit makers. Douglas also teaches a studio etiquette class at Ex’pression College for Digital Arts in Emeryville, CA., where he is also hosting an AES Tech Tour.

Narada Michael Walden: Is an eminently successful producer, drummer, singer, and songwriter. His musical career spans three decades, and is highlighted by multiple Gold, Platinum and Multi-Platinum Awards. In 1985 he won R&B Song of The Year Grammy for Aretha Franklin’s Freeway of Love. In 1987 he won Grammys for Producer of the Year and Album of the Year for The Bodyguard movie soundtrack, which included Whitney Houston’s timeless hit, I Will Always Love You. Named one of the “Top Ten Producers With the Most Number One Hits” by Billboard magazine, Walden has owned and operated Tarpan Studios, in San Rafael, since the mid-1980s.

Warren Huart: This Los Angeles based, UK-born music producer has played a fundamental part in creating platinum albums, and in the development of such successful artists as The Fray, Aerosmith, Howie Day and Matisyahu. Known for his hard work ethic and deep respect for the artist’s vision, Huart’s more than 20 years of experience encompasses record production, engineering, mixing and song writing. His extensive knowledge of musical equipment ranges from vintage through state of the art.

“The scope of their credentials may vary widely, but the quality and success ratio of their projects establishes a common ground for these creative masters. I also want to thank AES Tech Tours Chair Jessica Livingstone for her help in bringing Jack Douglas and Narada Michael Walden to this panel. This event will be the talk of the Convention,” “Christopher Smith concludes.”
