Day By Day
In 1976 while playing a gig at the jazz club 'Donte's' in North Hollywood, I met Cathy for the first time. She asked me if she could sing 'Lush Life' with me in Ab. I said, 'I have hard enough trouble playing that in Db!' She sang a few tunes and floored us. Well, since then I've been a friend and a fan of hers. She has a sweet and gentle voice that I love. This makes it all the easier to play for her. In 1995 we finally made this CD in a tiny voice-over studio that was cluttered with all kinds of junk. I'm amazed that we got a great CD under such uncomfortable circumstances. But such is the power of music. JOE DIORIO What a gift for me, to work on a recording with Joe! It turned out to be a ballad album, because every song we moved to, Joe would say, 'Hey Cath, how about doing this a little slower?' Joe is a brilliant musician, but he's more than that, because music, of course, isn't all technical prowess... it's soul, spirit, elan vital, the muse, the lovers! That's what he brings to the music. Thank you Joe, and thank to you all for listening. Cathy Segal-Garcia.
