What’s Going On

This Song Around The World features Marvin Gaye’s classic “What’s Going On.” This track began with an acoustic guitar in Africa and legendary drummer James Gadson in Los Angeles. Next we added the Electric guitar and bass on the streets of Chicago and strings in Serbia. As we traveled the world musicians were added and PFC Band members Clarence Bekker and Titi Tsira layered the vocals while Sara Bareilles added the final verse in Washington Square Park, NYC. Years in the making, minutes to watch, but something we can all believe in: MUSIC!

“What’s Going On” is on our CD/DVD, PFC3! The album features 185 musicians from 31 countries, and includes performances from Keith Richards, Andres Calamaro, Toots Hibbert from Toots & The Maytals, Cesar Rosas and David Hidalgo of Los Lobos, Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Keb Mo, and Taj Mahal in addition to a song produced by Jackson Browne.
