Hey Hey! Just sending out a huge ‘thanks’ to everyone who voted for the album cover. Depending on Chris’ schedule, we’ll probably throw a few more ideas up and ask your opinion again. I also want to encourage anyone who hasn’t seen the CD artwork drafts, to visit the site and give them a gander. It sounds like Chris had some good ideas, and I’d love to hear what you think, as I obviously can’t get a first-hand experience.
I just finished a weekend playing with the Jae Sinnett trio, and as usual, had a great time. It’s always a great learning experience performing with him. The more I do, the more I realize what it takes to be an entertainer. A big thanks to him for allowing me to play with the trio these last few years!
So, I’m just finalizing the song list for the sessions and heading back to New York tomorrow. I can’t tell you how excited we all are to get into the studios this weekend. Our big goal is just to have a good time. I think that one way to make a CD people will enjoy, is for us to enjoy the process, and I’m confident we’re going to have a blast. I have to say, I’m very thankful for how well things are working out. I couldn’t have asked for a better group of musicians and friends to record with, and couldn’t be happier about recording at Bennett Studios. That piano is just beautiful. Now, I have to make sure I grab one more Chick-Fil-A meal, and things will be good. I think it’s a record, I’ve been in Virginia for 4 days now, and haven’t had a meal at the good ol’ Fil-A. Ah well, one more day.
Alright, that does it for now. We’re squeezing in a couple more rehearsals and I’ll be sure to upload some of those tracks. Then, it’s to the studio!
