I hope you're enjoying the first signs of Spring. Its beautiful here in New York.
Last week was wonderful. I had the opportunity to record Stravinsky's Tango with a very gifted Classical pianist, Harriet Stubbs, who's making her debut album. The great producer, Russ Titelman, winner of 3 Grammy awards and maker of some the best records of all time was at the helm. He produced Sail Away by Randy Newman, one of my all time faves.
Working with Harriet and Russ was challenging in the best sense. Harriet's deep, insightful playing pushed me to reach deep into my own creative resources. And Russ' amazing musical imagination made me stretch my own.
I'm looking forward to hearing the finished result when the album comes out later this year. I'll keep you posted!
BTW, the session took place in Long Island City's Samurai Hotel Studios which boasts a gorgeous Steinway concert grand.
See you soon!
