This photo is from our November 22 concert, which went splendidly!
Banchinda and I continue our very enjoyable collaboration with another concert on December 10... if you're in the area and have a hankering for great music, stop on by! (For more info, visit the Calendar)
A preview of the new album Drink For Life.
This is the first track: Reflections
I'm so excited to share this with you!
This CD is the result of many hours of love poured out by young talent Ron Kent, songwriter, and arranger Stephen Burks. My quartet had the pleasure of laying down the string parts for the album, which includes ten original 'chorales' by Stephen, which are based on Ron's songs. It's a beautiful creative collaboration -- sincere, encouraging, and totally full of groove.
Unfortunately our other violinist, Ruth Bacon, was on tour with the John Williams Orchestra (not a bad gig!) when we put this all together, so she's not on the album, but our good friend James Reinarz jumped in and did a splendid job.
I'll let you all know as soon as I can how to order CDs online, but in the meantime, please feel free to contact me to get your own copy... I may even be able to work out a sweet bulk purchase deal for those of you who haven't finished your Christmas shopping. :)
Thanks for reading!
