On Thursday, April 5th, The Recording Academy’s Philadelphia Chapter members and Drexel University students gathered at the Bossone Research Center for GRAMMY SoundTables: Behind the Glass with Jimmy Douglass and Justin “Just Blaze” Smith. More than 140 guests turned out enjoy the conversation between two of the industry’s most active engineer/producers, moderated by P&E Wing Sr. Executive Director Maureen Droney.

Douglass and Smith, who hadn’t previously met, turned out to be kindred spirits, sharing with the audience their candid thoughts on the philosophy, psychology, and art of record production. They clearly enjoyed their conversation, as did the audience who joined in with incisive questions during the Q&A portion of the event. A networking reception followed, at which the interviewees fielded more questions from attendees. Event guests have expressed that they were well-informed from the evening’s content and were very appreciative that Douglass and Smith dove into specifics regarding their careers.
