A year ago next week I wrote a blog post in which I put out there my intention to make some new recordings. I optimistically thought there might be one or two full collections of new material ready by the end of the year.
Well, I dropped off the first one at the plant today -- 13 new masters and artwork for my next CD, entitled BETTER GET RIGHT. It's a recording inspired by and, in some way, set in New Orleans and features the Biting Fish Brass Band.
There are more CDs to come. Two more are in their final stages of mixing -- the first, NO FURTHER INSTRUCTIONS is my "Romania" song cycle. After that is THE WORLD WILL BE DIFFERENT, a collection featuring primarily guitar, bass and drums on a batch of new songs, most of which I've never played out.
I'm pretty excited about this stuff and I can't wait for you to hear it. Thanks to all who have been so supportive and encouraging during this fevered year of recording activity. I think you're gonna like the results.
