I never thought that I’d actually be on a record—but recently 2 of my tunes landed on a 45 rpm made for distribution in the Netherlands. A previously unreleased take of Jaka Caka Polka—(re-named Jelse Pelse Polka, after Jelse Vos, the Dutch record producer) and the recording of HoeDown (from the Stay All Night CD) are now available on www.polkas.nl . I’m anxious to see and hear the finished product—but I’m sure Jelse did a great job getting the tracks mastered for vinyl.
In the meantime, I’m busy working on some recording for other people’s projects. Between arranging and performing, it’s a lot of fun getting to work with the variety of musicians that bring me in…. (of course, I’m always interested in collaborating as a soloist or accompanist for new projects, so keep me in mind!) I’m also getting arrangements together to start my next album…. I’m planning on starting to record it later this summer—but it probably won’t be ready until next spring or summer.
Hope everyone had a great extended holiday weekend and remembered the people who made the ultimate sacrifice for our country.
