This seems to be a very interesting documentary. I will bookmark it for watching later. Related to this topic, the first name that comes to mind is Steve Lukather, he is a great guitarist and has composed amazing hit during the 80's...

How about bass player (she also played guitar on literally 1000's of songs from the late 50s through 90s).

Carol Kaye (one of the 'wrecking crew'):

Marius,

I love Nile as a player, too!

I challenge anyone to funk this hard!

Nile is one of those dudes who has a large body of work (and I like a lot of it) but I am not sure exactly he does. He kind of has a sound, I suppose. Some producers are just great at taking a band/artist and helping guide them in the music creating and recording process (Rick Rubin I think is this way)

Hopefully when I get around to watching this I'll have a better understanding of Nile.
