It’s been a bit of a long stretch, and a very busy Feb-March bringing this project to the finish line, but new recordings of my music are now available on Open G Records.   “Addressing Wonder” is the title of the collection (and one of the pieces), with fabulous performances by wonderful friends and incredible artists: Sharon Harms (soprano), Steven Beck (piano), Hannah Levinson (viola), Chris Gross (cello), and Amanda Gregory (soprano), recorded by Adam Abeshouse, produced by Chris Grymes.  The artwork is by Chris Glass—I’d not realized how much the ‘look’ sets the scene for a listening, and I just love Chris’s imagery and design.  The four pieces included span from 1996 to 2017, and I’ve found this entire process an interesting means to learn about my own development and growth.

So, here’s a eye/ear peek:

We’re going all-digital on this release, though in a few weeks I’ll produce a few dozen physical copies and send around until I run out—I promise.  It won’t be a CD (does anyone still use ’em?), but it will be a physical artifact. Send me a note if you want one. If digital’s ok, then cdbaby, Applemusic, Spotify, i.e., the usual suspects, will all have it available by tomorrow, I believe. (CDBaby’s the only outlet allowing highest fidelity recordings, I’m told.)
