In This Place
Well, here we go again. And before I say anything else, I'd like to first say thanks to those of you who supported my debut CD 'Blind Jake's Jump'. And to those of you who are here for the first time, I'd also like to say thanks to you as well. I hope this is not your last visit. With regard to 'In This Place', know that the mood and 'sense' of this work differs noticeably from that of 'Jake'. Musically, it's scope may be a little leaner than before, but it's effect in turn, I think, is more visceral and substantive instead. Also, for very specific reasons, I felt compelled to incorporate something other than 'just' music in this work. So I wrote you sort of a note. Ordinarily, I would normally be adverse to doing such a thing; but I thought this work was different and as such required something 'above and beyond' the music. Admittedly, this was a risky proposition; considering that (usually) external contrivances such as explanations or other such pointed exhortations generally serve to only detract from the author's intended effect for the work. But (again), I thought about you. And because I did, I left a thought or two in the liner notes of this CD 'just for you'. So, if you really want to know what it says, you'll have to get the CD. When you do, I hope you'll find that your investment will (in the end ) have been worth it. Well, I guess that's it for now; until next time, as always, thank you for listening, enjoy the dance, and I'll see you somewhere in the music...AHR.
