If you’ve ever listened to recordings by Elvis Presley, Waylon Jennings or Dolly Parton, you’ve probably heard the bass stylings of Norbert Putnam. In addition to playing on more than 9,000 tracks, Putnam began producing in 1970, lending his ear to tunes such as Jimmy Buffett’s “Margaritaville” and Kris Kristofferson’s 1981 breakup album To the Bone. The hit maker, who was part of the original Muscle Shoals Rhythm Section, heads to Saint Michael’s College on Friday for an afternoon bass summit with fellow four-string aficionado Mike Gordon of Phish. That evening, Putnam presents “Muscle Shoals to Margaritaville: An Evening With Norbert Putnam,” a multimedia talk with a focus on his 2017 autobiography Music Lessons: A Musical Memoir.
