In The Mood

A straight cover of the Glenn Miller track from 1939, I recorded a Big Band including (and conducted by) jazz giant, Gilad Atzmon. The dance sequence had been filmed to the Glenn Miller original and it was necessary to capture a take with exactly the same swing and timing. This was achieved by pulling together a great band, capturing a great performance to a strict tempo-map and then carrying out some very subtle editing. The final mix, by my long-term collaborator (and friend) in San Francisco, Karl Derfler – ensured the track had the perfect dynamics and feel.

original track – no dialogue
