Al Schmitt: A Day With the Legendary Engineer who Changed the Music Business
In this historic video, legendary engineer and record producer Al Schmitt engineerings The Mavericks En Español with Niko Bolas producing. We filmed this video with Al years ago, before our Inside Blackbird production was established, but in light of Al’s recent passing in April of 2021, we know how precious it is to have documented this day. Al is one of the most successful engineers of all time, having won twenty Grammys in his lifetime, two Latin Grammys and a Trustees Grammy for Lifetime Achievement. He worked with Toto, Steely Dan, Frank Sinatra, Paul McCartney, Bob Dylan, and many more. Niko narrates the footage and provides a deep commentary that only a 30+ year friendship can bring.
