My favorite project was a lovingly edited and expanded soundtrack of Mary Poppins, which we produced for the first time on CD. I collaborated with legendary recording engineers Shawn Murphy and Bruce Botnick and was privileged to work with the film’s songwriters Richard and Robert Sherman, two of the most delightful people you could ever hope to meet.
History can be brought to life through stories and music, and it stops for no one, as recent events show:
Dave Smith died last Friday, February 15, 2019, having spent 40 years as the keeper of Walt Disney's legacy.
Shawn Murphy won a 2019 Grammy Award last week for Best Engineered Album, Classical, with the Boston Symphony Orchestra.
Richard and Robert Sherman went on to write songs for “Winnie the Pooh,” “The Jungle Book,” “The Aristocats,” and dozens of other films, Disney and otherwise. Bob died March 6, 2012, but Dick appears in the closing credits of the recent movie “Christopher Robin,” singing two original songs.
