Wow! 9 takes in 20 minutes! They were all perfect, but take 9 took the cake! Also, thanks for the song rename to "Dead City Bones" ... fitting title now that I have the trombone solo! Cheers.

Great session with Chris! I asked for a short solo, and instead I received a whole horn section in under 30 minutes. How cool is that!

Chris gets to work right away. He was quick to understand what the song needed and gave it a good lift. Concerning the files, they came as they should and were very good quality. Can't wait to work with him again.

Chris did a great job on the trombone tracks on my tune Wild and Free. One more piece of the brass section puzzle down.

I had a session with Chris and it was fantastic as usual! I feel like I can go way out there with meter changes and complex elements and the Musiversal musicians just nail it every time. It's encouraging me to push further in my own writing! Thank you!!!

Problems with audio movers link. Was set up for Chris the guitarist not Chris the trombone player. Never received files from my first session. Otherwise a great player very laid back and easy going. No drama
