Re: John JR Robinson
Hmmm, what can I say?!
I think this album is quite possibly one of the best albums ever produced. After watching a two part documentary of Quincy Jones, I started to dig a bit deeper into his productions. I bought this album, and when I read the credits, man, I was blown away. All of those phenomenal musicians on one CD! How sexy is Patti Austin's voice??
For me, I agree with Tim. It's JR's hi-hat control that stands out. If you listen to "Rock With You", "I Can't Help It, "Betcha Wouldn't Hurt Me", these are typical examples of that "not quite' opening of the hats he does.
Plus, I just love that raw sound of the snare on all the tunes on Off The Wall
