Eve of the Eve
Today I enjoyed a light rehearsal with my friend David Patrick, an excellent guitarist who will be a featured artist on my upcoming EP, “Songs of Love, Despair and Regret.” He adds so much to my composition with his great musical ideas, taste, and ear for advanced harmonies. His solo on the ballad, “Jack”, will certainly be one of the high points of this recording. After our rehearsal today I am even more excited about the project.
My friend, David Sparr, will be on keyboards and at the engineering controls. David is an amazing musician and musical director, as well as a great friend. His ears and eyes have been of vital importance in advance of the session to help make sure my charts are accurate, and it will be his ears and musical sense that will make our recordings the best that they can be.
Joining us on bass guitar and trombone will be Dan Fox, excellent on both instruments. Out of kindness and his natural good nature Dan has helped me in many ways on my own musical journey. It is very fortunate to have his talent, taste and great ears on board.
On cajon and percussion, my friend Jeremiah Klarman adds surprising dimension to my music with his rhythmic interpretations. He is a great listener, and brings my musical dreams to an eclectic and memorable reality. Jeremiah is also a musical composer and excellent pianist.
I will be going into the the studio to record music for this EP recording together with David Patrick, David Sparr, Dan Fox and Jeremiah Klarman along with special guest soloist John Clark on August 1 and 2. I hope to release this first EP sometime this fall. I’ll keep you posted.
