Fever (With Natalie Cole)

Album 2004 CompanyWith Natalie Cole

Album: Genius Loves Company, Concord, August 2004.

The album was recorded at RPM International (and some of the orchestral parts elsewhere) in Los Angeles between mid 2003 and March 2004. For an unabridged personnel listing see Wikipedia.

(Read this if you want to understand a) how the conga, drums, finger snaps, and bass guitar were synchronized with each other to a precision of better than 15 milliseconds, b) that Ray Charles’ finger snap time deltas were less than 5 milliseconds, c) meaning that the deviation from the canonical MB metronome beat times was less than a world record breaking +/- 2.5 milliseconds).

Update 01.02.2021:
