Q

Your thoughts on the differences between musicians who play/sing only by ear, vs singers/musicians who also read and write music and know theory.


Allan Harris Productions responded on 04/15/2012
A

Well, I can't help but feel that playing an instrument and singing is the best combination because it means you are versatile and schooled. But some of the best musicians in the world don't read music. It's really an individual thing being a musician and the ones who don't read music, usually have the most developed ear!

Q

Baronesse Pannonica de Königswarter asked jazz musicians about their three biggest wishes in their life .... What would be yours?


Allan Harris Productions responded on 04/15/2012
A

My biggest wish for my career is that I be blessed with good health so that I can continue to sing and play guitar to audiences around the world. But I must add that I am most excited about the success of my musical, Cross That River, which will have its first professional booking in Theatre Aspen in the summer of 2013!

That is a surprise! I would love to test that theory out!!!

Q

How do you feel about singers using "Auto Tune" to fix vocals in the studio or for effects?


Allan Harris Productions responded on 03/11/2012
A

I don't like that auto tune can fix any vocalist's recordings because it can proliferate a lie about their technique. But, no one is perfect, and in these days when there are no longer big budgets to take your time in the recording studio, sometimes there are things that can be fixed in the mix. I don't mind that...instrumentalists can fix their parts as well...its a matter of living with a recording you know has been done as perfectly as you can get it. So if you have to auto tune a whole song, there's a problem with your technique.
