PRODUCTION AND SESSIONS AVAILABILTY
Bob Baldwin started songwriting in 1985 with James "Crab" Robinson, and that's where he met Najee prior to his debut disc. Since then, he's produced/arranged with some of the best in the business. Now he's opening up his schedule to produce you or one of your artists. His last five nationally recorded discs since 2000 have all charted Billboard Top 20. His contribution to the disc by Urban crooner Will Downing earned him a Grammy nomination for the "All The Man You Need" disc (2000). He began playing at the age of four, hung out at his dad's gigs at age 7 with men 40 years his senior. His sequencing and programming skills happened in 1983 on Roger Powell Texture and has recorded through the 2-inch, ADAT and now digital recording eras.
Having perfect pitch is certainly a strong asset in the studio and stamps out bad notes, flat and sharp notes. If a car is honking his horn down the street, he'll tell you the key.
"The ear is critical to a great session", quotes the native New Yorker.
