Jackson and I met at a jam while he was visiting NYC, and he had a vision for adding cello to a commercial spot he was working on. We spent a couple of sessions improvising together and went into the studio.
I had done a few studio recordings before, but this was my first advertising gig. I really wasn’t sure what to expect. As it turned out, fitting all the music we had thought about into a one minute commercial spot was totally impossible. We ended up just improvising something brand new in the studio.
