Change of Venue, Change of Fate

This project has really taken on a life of its own. The original studio tracking day was actually canceled but for the best of reasons. I was in CA. helping my Step-Daughter with a project. While on the trip I took the opportunity to visit an old friend. His name is Magic and he also happens to be the man who was the Producer/Engineer for us when I was recording at A&M Records with Nightwatch.

I had no expectations or intentions for the visit other than personal friendship, but as we talked and I played a little for him (out of excitement for the session scheduled for the next week), it became abundantly clear that Magic was supposed to be a part of this and when he made it clear he was interested it was like in the Godfather: It was an offer I couldn’t refuse (or at least would have been a fool to refuse).

So now the first tracking date has been moved back until the end of this month when I will start a series of trips, commuting to LA to record. To be back behind a microphone with Magic running the session is good fortune beyond my wildest hopes.

So, I guess my music venture will now be split between Dallas and LA. My current intention (stipulating that things have been changing and improving on an almost hourly basis) is to develop a live show capability in both Dallas and LA. The logistics are daunting but at least at this time it feels like the right way to go.

Something New

I don’t know if I am just lucky, the recipient of some kind of Divine miracle or I accidently sold my soul to the Devil and forgot about it. For most of the last quarter of a century I’ve been, for the most part, unable to play piano well because of Arthritis pain and unable to sing with any power because of asthma.

Right around the first of February this year (2017), that changed. The first thing I noticed was that my hands no longer hurt and I thought I’d try and play again. On Feb. 6th I had my stepdaughter’s little spinet piano that had been stored for years tuned up and gave it a try. To my shock and surprise IT WORKED! Then I started to sing and really open up, NO COUGHING!

In the past 26 days amazing changes have occurred and the pace of the improvements is still accelerating. I am actually booked into a great local studio here in Dallas to record 2 or 3 songs and there is a real chance that I may end up recording more after that. To say I am surprised and amazed is a vast understatement and I keep expecting to wake up and find that this is just some fever dream. If, by chance I am not hallucinating this, I should have something new to post soon.
