Obituary: Arthur A. Black Jr. - Press Herald
Arthur A. Black Jr.
SAN ANTONIO – Arthur A. Black Jr., 93, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Nov. 1, 2019, in San Antonio, Texas, where he was living comfortably with family. He was born Jan. 21, 1926 to Arthur A. and Ruby S. Black and raised in Portland, Maine (and Gray during summers).Arthur enlisted in the Air Force at 18 and after serving, graduated from the University of Maine with a B.S. in business in 1949. He had a successful string of entrepreneurial ventures over the years (apartment and shopping center management, aerial property photography, real estate in Florida). He worked through his late 80s but always spent as much time as he could relaxing on Little Sebago Lake at the family camp or taking a vacation abroad. He cared about family more than anything and was a warm and loving man who made everyone he met smile, laugh, and feel heard. Arthur or “Grampy” was the embodiment of quiet gratitude and he stayed cool, calm, content and comical right up until his final hou... Oct 10, 2019
Minneapolis musical mentor and ‘mad scientist’ Ed Ackerson dies at 54 - St. Paul Pioneer Press
Still, Polara established Ackerson on a national level. He went on to produce and/or engineer albums for everyone from Clay Aiken to Joseph Arthur to the Kinks’ Dave Davies. Hundreds of acts recorded music at Flower Studios over the years, including Lizzo, Brian Setzer, Hippo Campus, Craig Finn, Metro Station, Juliana Hatfield, Grant Hart and Rhett Miller.
In 2006, the Replacements reunited to record a pair of new songs for a Rhino Records compilation and asked Ackerson to produce. The band worked with him again on 2013’s “Songs for Slim,” a benefit for Replacements guitarist Slim Dunlap, who had suffered a stroke.
“I’ve known Paul (Westerberg) and Tommy (Stinson) forever, so I think they feel comfortable working at Flowers,” Ackerson told City Pages in 2013. “They like to work fast, capture the moment and spirit, and our studio is designed to make that sort of thing happen easily. … With a great band, the best approach is often to let the energy develop naturally and make sure the technical aspects are invisible to the players.”
Soul Asylum recorded their 2012 album “Delayed Reaction” at Flowers Studio. “I love Ed and loved working with him,” said former Soul Asylum guitarist Daniel Murphy. “He made everyone around him more concise and really ran a great studio, where fun and ease and productivity were king.”
Over the past decade, Ackerson focused on raising his 4-year-old daughter Annika and making music as BNLX with his wife. BNLX’s “LP” featured a photo of the family’s late dog Wiggy on its cover. “We started thinking about it and Wiggy is kind of like another band member,” Ackerson said in a 2012 Pioneer Press interview. “Beyond maybe an hour, he was with us literally every minute we wrote and recorded everything for this band. He’s even gone on tour with us. We wanted to have something on the cover that was very much part of our world, and that’s Wiggy. Plus, it’s time for him to start carrying his weight. You put a picture of a cute puppy on something and it sells more.”
Ackerson continued to make music while dealing with his cancer. “Despite it all, I’ve been in an amazingly creative period musically, with a couple of brand new sonic collaborations in the works,” he wrote on Facebook. “I can’t wait to share some of these new sounds soon.”
Mallman said losing Ackerson was like losing a family member. “We went through all kinds of stuff together. When I lost my mom, he was the... Oct 10, 2019
