Transmitting From NYC... I just added 2 photos from way back in the archives taken at the original recording sessions for Leonard Bernstein's Mass in 1971 at Columbia Records Studios. What a thrill it was to work with the Maestro who had more energy than the entire orchestra combined! (He conducted the entire piece). Another thrill was having lunch with him in the basement cafeteria of the infamous Watergate Hotel (pre-Watergate scandal) which was situated next-door to the Kennedy Center where the piece was premiered. Without a doubt, a career highlight!
