New CD on the way

Last fall I holed up in SF, with the intention of making a new CD by spring. I thought I was going to multitrack it. What actually happened was I made zero releasable tracks, and accidentally practiced my music like crazy for months. Then, I had my birthday show at the Bazaar Cafe, and recorded that CD in two hours. Shades of the sixties! This is a great way to make a record. Just hone the songs on stage and in the studio, and crank out the record in one day. A lot more fun than doing 200 takes of a guitar lick, which can easily happen in computer-based recording.

So “At the Bazaar” is on its way. It’s already mastered, and until I get nice packaged ones I’m burning them free for friends. Use the contact page to send me a snailing address and I’ll be delighted to send you one.

Here’s a taste: Purple Heart, with cowriter Melissa Mermin in the audience.
