Arthur Lipner Sessions For Hire

Adding Arthur's real vibes, marimba, and steel drums is a great way to enhance jazz, pop, and world music
 projects. Artists and producers are often unfamiliar with how to incorporate these instruments into their music. Listen to these samples of what Arthur's performance can add to your recording project - taken from 18 different albums/sessions!

NYC-based Arthur Lipner has been a solo artist, bandleader, and first-call session player for more than three decades. He can help with all production aspects of adding the amazing sounds of his instruments to your music.

Artists and producers often want to add vibes, marimba or steel pans to a couple of tunes on an album but don't know how to go about hiring the best and having it all come together. Sometimes people ask Arthur for specific parts such as melody or solo. Other times, people want his energy and sound color but aren't sure which instrument to use and what fits where in compositions/arrangements or tracks already recorded. This is where Arthur's expertise really shines.

He can listen to your music with you by phone or Skype. He'll get a sense of your creative ideas and goals, make recommendations, and work through the process together with you. Arthur can provide you with multiple takes and choices, allowing for maximum flexibility in post-production.

These are among his many session calls on vibes, steel pans and marimba:

- Jazz vibes on 10 AT&T tv spots, plus other sessions for tv

- Steel pans for a recent United Airlines In-Flight Safety Video. In that session, Arthur created 8 tracks to create the sound of a mini steel band.

- Other TV work includes performing live on ABC's The View, Fuji tv (Tokyo-based) and a Lime-Away commercial.

- Marimba session with Alash (Russian Tuvan throat singers), many albums and projects.

Recently, Arthur played vibes on a Chet Baker-style album for US release, and a Beatles tune for a Rio de Janeiro-based vocal artist. He has done a dozen recording sessions in Rio, but with today's technology Arthur can just as easily complete his sessions at home - saving time and money.
