ready to rock your socks off, relax, and to go off into fantasyland...all
with the music within this CD! This recording started with one
week left to film the 'boys in the band' before they all departed
San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, after the last tour concert and
went their separate ways. With their own performance rehearsals
and gigs, both with the tour band and with others, they had little
time to devote to my CD project. However, the musicians herein
'squoze' me in! We had one afternoon to rehearse and two afternoons
to record! Then Gene Perla took over the project at his studio
in Pennsylvania. What a master at his craft! We'd be listening
and editing with engineer, Nick, when Gene would say,"Stop!
That note is out of pitch." This was every instrument on
the recording!! Then, I asked him to "symphonize" some
of the songs. So, he would sit at the midi and in one take play
the piece brilliantly! What a blessing that I have all of these
very talented and authentic musicians! By Authentic I mean true
musicians...no "play this note and repeat it in the edit".
Oh no! They played every note on this CD themselves! Now when
it came to the bonus track, Pure Imagination, I did a "Musical
Animation" (yes, you may quote me!) that included repeats,
reverbs and sounds like no other!! Now it's off to the Grammy's!
Thank you for listening!
