After Party with Tianna Hall ‘Fever’ 9-20-06

For almost four seasons, we did a little talk show called The After Party on HousotnPBS. This was another brainchild of the amazing Ernie Manouse and was capably directed by Matt Brawley. We were crammed into studio B. Music consisted of a tiny stage and a crappy electric piano. It was a great vehicle to promote the cultural scene in Houston, and I got to design and mix a classic, if small, host-desk driven talk show with a live audience. The show gave me a huge respect for the cats that do the classic TV talk shows, and it was a ride that upped the game of the entire crew at KUHT. Killed in its prime by a new station manager who had to make his mark by screwing up something and then leaving, I doubt the like will be seen again.

Tianna Hall is the full deal. A jazz diva with a big voice, big book, big heart, the list goes on. She is regularly up for the Houston Press Music Award.

She’s so cool she lent me her Trans Am after a wreck, graciously joined me for my for my second Emmy wining Gala and let me mix and master her amazing CD ‘Tianna Hall & The Mexico City Jazz Trio’

The 100th episode is always a milestone, even though it was my first and all I did was the mansion scenes. Doug Robertson was the sound mixer for the Shipping Wars Season 7 episode 20 “Marc and Jenn’s Munsters Mission” by Megalomedia on A&E Originals.

It was great working with Butch Patrick and Pat Priest, the surviving cast members of The Munsters a show that began in 1960.

Congrats to the Jr League! 90 Years Serving Houston

The Junior League of Houston 90th Anniversary from Zenfilm on Vimeo.

It is an honor and privilege to have a job that allows me to meet and record Houstonians that give back to their community. For 90 years the Jr League of Houston has fostered the unique character and culture of the town through the activation and action of women citizens. Zen Film created the video for this milestone anniversary. Douglas Robertson of Citizen Doug Productions did most of the interview recordings for the project.

Also it is with great joy that I got to work once again with Alecia Lawyer, founder of the River Oaks Chamber Orchestra . It is always a wonderful meeting her in the course of my professional meanderings.
