An Amazing Artist – Angela McCluskey
I had the pleasure a few years ago to work with Angela McCluskey as an assistant engineer on a version of the jazz standard “Beautiful Things” , the arrangement was done by my good friend John “Scrapper” Sneider. The song was produced for a :30 commercial featuring things considered ugly. There was also a full length version of the song produced that was never released. I remember many times going in the studio and listening to the full length version, it was awesome!
You may remember Angela’s bluesy voice from Telepopmusik’s Grammy-nominated hit Breathe
Here is the “Beatiful Things” AMEX commercial produced by Ogilvy New York.
