Remembering Jerry Wexler's Groove
Legendary music producer, Jerry Wexler, died at the age of 91 a few days ago. Aretha Franklin, Ray Charles, Wilson Pickett, Led Zepplin, Bob Dylan, Santana, Dire Straits and George Michael are just a few of the artists he produced at some point or another. Here is the New York Times obituary. Here is an excellent interview with Wexler from NPR's Fresh Air back in the 1990s. And here is a review of Wexler's autobiographical book about the music industry.
