The TASCAM Model 12 Integrated Production Suite is Central to Brian Newman's Activities

Bandleader/Arranger/Trumpeter/Vocalist Brian Newman is one busy musician. For over twenty years, he and his band have been performing to audiences all over the world and, this same core group of musicians serves as the Lady Gaga Jazz Quintet and Orchestra. They have a residency in Las Vegas at the Nomad Library of the Park MGM hotel in addition to weekly residencies in New York City. As part of his responsibilities, his band arranged, recorded, and toured with Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga for the Cheek-to-Cheek record and also arranged, recorded, and performed the album Love For Sale. And central to much of his work—both live and in the studio—is his TASCAM Model 12 Integrated Production Suite.
