Died on 21.01.2005.
Founder of Paragon Studios in Chicago in 1969; others as co-creator of Chicago-based EARS (Engineering and Recording Society). Feldman got his start as a gigging drummer in St. Louis before heading to Chicago to learn under legendary engineer Malcolm Chisholm. According to Gary Khan, founder of Pegasus Recording Co., Feldman was most comfortable "holding court" anywhere, but Chisholm was the only person who commanded Feldman's immediate and respectful attention with a stern, but simple, “Martin!” as only Chisholm would call him. While at Paragon, Feldman worked with such luminaries as Earth, Wind & Fire and a who's who of Chicago-based R&B, soul, jazz, rock and blues artists.
