Our current news is below, followed by highlights from 2011:

Ronnie Lawson Productions—Actelion Show

We have just wrapped prerecords and stem mixes for Ronnie Lawson Productions for an Actelion Pharmaceuticals show to occur early next year. Performers on the dates included the incomparable Billy Porter, Ada Dyer and Nicki Richards. Also, new to JGMP, though hardly new to most of you, the amazing singer Russell Velazquez (Pokemon, Sesame Street) came in and totally laid down the law, LMFAO-style!

JGMP — COMPOSING FOR KILLER TRACKS:

We have just delivered final mixes for a Killer Tracks/Universal CD of contemporary pop tracks.  This is our first project for Killer as sole music producer.  In addition to our own compositions and instrumental work, the disc features several collaborations with singer/songwriter Kay Story and some great pop vocal performances by Wes Hutchinson


MISC JGMP NEWS:

Preproduction work continues for a new Amy Lennard CD.  Production is in process for a new Meg Flather CD.  Eytan Mirsky and Brian McNeese continue to record and compile songs for future releases.

Completed remastering/restoration for Tony Barca on "The Crescent 5" 1965 single.  Eugene Benjamin, whose CD  "Martha Avenue" was mastered here, reports that it has sold out and has been reordered.

Marco Joachim writes in with the following review of his JGMP produced CD "Hidden Symphonies": 

Mike Baron’s Top Ten Of ’11 [Posted on 07 December 2011]

TOP TEN  ’11

One:  Marco JoachimHidden Symphonies.  Hidden Symphonies is a pop masterpiece that achieves a Sgt. Pepper-like grandeur through constant melodic and textural invention.  "Gramercy Park" is as memorable as anything the Beatles achieved in later years.  "Cellophane Sue" is an obvious goof on "Polythene Pam" and a solid hit in its own right.  Marco is immeasurably aided by producer/guitarist Jon Gordon whose epic guitar is all over these tracks.
