I met him at his place back in the early Spring, and set up while he was finishing up a conference call with several marketing industry big shots  — or were they music industry bigshots?  I can’t keep up. He literally lives downtown, in an apartment with high ceilings and wood floors and thin windows.  It sounded a little wet in the reverb department, but it was all good.  I think you’ll enjoy it.  We sat down with a couple of mugs of wine and chatted up everything from his choir boy days to building organizations to help advance exposure and careers of musicians and all creative types, literally all over the globe.  We chat technology, how that’s coming into play these days in the creation and performance of music, what’s next in that respect, and actually things get a little personal there toward the end…
