The Soul Arranger (Part three)
Jerry Peters producer/arranger/songwriter. It's quite easy to focus on strings and horns when talking about great arrangers and Jerry was a master of both but I also must focus on Jerry mainly for his rhythm track arrangements. Jerry along with Keg Johnson, David Crawford and drummer Harvey Mason were much responsible for the classic 'Sylvers' sound on Pride/MGM records (btw Michael Viner of the Incredible Bongo Band was the executive producer on most of those albums, and as you can see by the track list I'm a big Sylvers fan). This line up is good proof that a great arranger needs a great team to make the real magic happen.

The Soul Arranger (Part Two)
If you have music running through your head when you wake up in the morning, when you brush your teeth, and all day . . . well, that's the kind of thing we should be trying to help you with. But we'll show you what others did, too, so you can use them as role models.

The Soul Arranger (Part one)
I have always been moved by great orchestral accompaniments and the amazing arrangers of the 60's and 70's, sadly this art form is slowly receding throughout today’s Soul music. Although I also love the classical/pop arrangements of masters such as George Martin, Lalo Schifrin, Hal & Burt and the great reggae arrangements of Brian Rogers (arranged for Jamaican singer John Holt) throughout this series of podcasts I wanna focus on my fave soul arrangers cats like Charles Stepney, Richard Evans, Gene Page, Wade Marcus, Charles Chalmers, Quincy Jones and Jerry Peters. Kicking off with the genius of Charles Stepney.
