Smile Nuyorican Soul - Runaway - M.A.W. feat La India, VMJ! Tongue


Hi Everybody!

Since 1997, I often get asked about my session engineering work on the Nuyorican Soul Album alot from DJ�s, House Heads & Club Music Lovers all over the world, so I thought I�d post some info here in a thread at SoulfulPlanet.

Yes, it was an incredible pleasure and honor Recording & Engineering Strings & Orchestra tracks and Overdubs on this tune and others on
the Nuyorican Soul album, and also The Braxton�s album, in sessions with Masters At Work - MAW, (Little Louie Vega & Kenny "Dope" Gonzalez) in Philly at Victory Studios, with friends Vincent Montana, Jr. Arranging/Conducting & playing Vibes, with Ronnie James on Guitar,
and the late great Larry Washington on Congas.   

In fact, sadly this was the last session of zillions over the many years that I recorded with Larry Washington on Congas right before he passed away. (I miss Larry, big time!)

I engineered these sessions along with Jeff Chestek in Philly at Victory Studios, and Art Stoppe recorded other tracks at Sigma as well, while Steve Barkan, Dave Darlington & Phil Pagano etc., engineered, mixed and compiled in NY at MAW Studios with Louie & Kenny.

From a personal perspective, the full blown String dates and overdub sessions on these albums that went through my hands were Classic Sessions that I will never, ever forget...

Great string charts from Vince (Vincent Montana, Jr) with live Philly Strings kicking it in the studio, (not to mention his Vibe solos, Larry's Conga parts, Ronnie's Guitar work, etc)... all with a packed control room of great, talented people witnessing it all. it was a groove!

This album was a GREAT NEW YORK/PHILLY Collaboration... look at the total credits listed below. and see what I mean!
... and oh yes, La India can SING!

Very Sad News Today from VMJ's FB Page


The reality of this incredible loss of Vincent Montana, Jr.,
is hard to accept.

Denise Montana was here in session with me
all day yesterday, and we were hoping
that Vince would be back out of the hospital next week...
as he had done so many times before.

My last 2 and a half hour conversation with Vince
was a few weeks ago, and we laughed together a hell of alot...
catching up on everything Music,
and remembering details of so many
great sessions done together over the years.

This all seems so impossibly surreal right now,
as the Classic Music of Denise Montana & Vincent Montana, Jr.,
is on my ProTools computer as I type this.

My heart, my thoughts and my love are with
Denise, Tom, Hilda, Eileen & Vincent III, and the entire immediate and extended Montana Family right now.
We will miss Vince very, very much,
and insure that the wonderful memories and incredible musical genius
of Vincent Montana, Jr., "VMJ"...
will never fade...

To My Good Friend Vincent, Rest in Peace.
~MuchLove, Gene Leone

In Memory of my good friend, Vincent Montana Jr.,
These are some of the actual
String & Orchestra Charts that Vince made me
for our many studio sessions over the years...


and...
VINCENT MONTANA JR. PRESENTS - GOODY GOODY - DENISE MONTANA - # 1 DEE JAY


Vince, I will miss You, Rest In Peace. ~Geno
