The Oscars were pretty cool all in all..... don't you think?
Amazing musicianship and especially the technology to get the orchestra piped in and synced from the Capitol Records Studios down the road.
Quick turn over and setup of on-site musicians, choral ensembles, and band configurations...
Great sound tech except for a few lead vocals (ie Adele) getting buried in the mix.
Shirley Bassey? Hoo ha!
And Seth McFarlane did an admirable job, too. BTW, his album is pretty damn good, you should check it out!
Alas, a musician's day is never done, as the pic denotes (was that a pun?!)
