Once Upon a Time
This CD is a collection of love songs. And, there's something for everyone - rock to jazz, country rock to rockabilly, even the sounds of 30s / 40s music. It turns out that I am very lucky in love, so I dedicate this to my Monica, who inspired the whole thing. I've also experienced the love of many people who helped me complete this project. They include music-artists from Starving Artist (my coffeehouse on City Island, NY) - Jon Burr (track 5), Jonathan Russell (tracks 5, 10, 11) and Theresa Sareo (tracks 3, 5, 12) - as well as new friend Vickie Russell (tracks 8, 10). Thanks to Anna Foster for her beautiful Orchard Beach (New York) photographs - and for spending a Friday morning with us on the beach. Last, but not least, I thank the 'maestro' John Guth for his wizardry (as CD producer, plus he recorded / mixed / mastered the CD) - and 'Uncle' Bill Yehle and Hannah for 'all those Tuesdays' that I recorded this over a year's period. And, although the songs are my love story, people have told me that they call to mind their own love stories, and celebrate the love in their lives - and I invite you to listen and do the same! REVIEWS - From the Music World... 'Elliott Glick's new release 'Once Upon a Time' is a sumptuous, rich, diverse tour-de-force crafted by a master singer-songwriter operating at the very top of his game. Ably assisted by the ace arranger-producer-engineer John Guth, the songs consist of a rich assortment of styles fully realized with authentic production values and the secret ingredient that drives the whole project - love.
