Dennis Wilson, himself, begins our second episode by detailing his unique songwriting process behind the songs for Pacific Ocean Blue. His keyboard playing was not as technically skilled as a session pro would be, but Dennis had an uncanny ability to use a piano or synth to recreate the sounds or emotions he felt while playing. As Dennis says, it’s the “experience of experiencing an artistic moment.”
Carole Bloom, Jim Guercio and Gregg Jakobson follow up their comments from the first piece with memories of how Dennis’ confidence to write and perform his own music developed over time. It’s easy to hear how much Dennis was influenced by his brother, Brian, to use a studio to creatively weave and layer these sounds around each other for his record.
