Play That, Teo (2017)Documentary, Biography, Music · 30 December 2017
There's a good chance that anyone with a music collection has at least one recording by Teo Macero. From Miles Davis' KIND OF BLUE - #12 on Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Albums, and BITCHES BREW (#94) - to Dave Brubeck's TIME OUT, to Simon & Garfunkel's THE GRADUATE, to Broadway's A CHORUS LINE, Teo made history with his uncompromising attitude and groundbreaking recording innovations. And after 30 years at Columbia, 3000 albums, 25 Gold & Multi-Platinum Records, his impact spans generations, influencing modern artists from U2 producer Brian Eno to turntablist DJ Logic. But when Teo joined Columbia in 1956, he hadn't produced a single record. This is the story of how he did it...all.
