Well I tell you I thank all of you who knew Mr. Decoteaux and who helped him in his work he loved what he did and the many people he worked with like Les, McCann, B.B. King, Cissy Houston, Ben E. King, Sister Sledge, Four Tops and he loved the staff of Media Sound Recording which is now closed. Once again I want to thank all of you for loving my father.

Dear Sir,
I have been listening to The Main Ingredient a lot lately. The production/arranging of Bert Decoteaux on these recordings is simply stupendous. His use and understanding of european-style orchestration is superb. I dug a little deeper into the work behind the Main Ingredient recordings and discovered the extensive production work done by your father. Many more of my favorite records were done by him; Marlene Shaw, B.B. King, Ben E. King, The Manhattans, etc. I am so glad to have learned about him.

Along with Michael J. Powell, Don Davis, Bobby Martin, Thom Bell and a few others, he is one of the best record producers/arrangers ever. I would love to learn even more about him. Thank you so much for the opportunity to express myself about your father's work, God bless you and best of luck..

Long live Supercharts
