As producers, arrangers, and musicians, Nard and Nile are about as good as it gets. The above videos are a few points of interest in their incredible careers. I spoke with Fred Schneider of the B-52's about working with Nile and he says that he's the best producer he's ever worked with. Daryl Easlea's book Chic: Everybody Dance: The Politics of Disco is a solid account of their brilliance.
