Progress on Progress

Right now, the working title on our new CD is "Juggler's Progress". This title is in the "title track" genre of titles (i.e. there is a tune called "Juggler's Progress"). The other title I kinda like is, "Too True to be Ridiculous". But TTTBR will probably go the way of "What if We Were From France"--a discarded but frontrunning title whilst working on our last CD, "SEAWORTHY".

Yes, "Juggler's Progress" will likely win out....And, you know, progress is what we have made, my sweet readers!

Last week the keyboard deities smiled benevolently upon our search for THE PERFECT PIANO for Gary & me to record with our spiffy remote setup. The dictates of privacy demand that we dare not reveal the exact location, but we found a VERY NICE PIANO--perhaps, indeed PERFECT--and we got two days with it. We had some insane technical hurdles to overcome--frying gear and other tribulations--but when a piano like this calls, you answer, you don't let it go to voicemail! I will disclose that it is a 9-foot STEINWAY Homberg D. OH how I sweated and strove over its 9-foot burly-yet-sleek body. In some songs I was forced to stand to make those bass strings really sing out as I struck them with all the might and main of my 5-foot frame. Oh how I played take after take unto the night time. And it was good. We got piano tracks for 11 tunes!!!!! A big leap in our timetable, fo sho.

Now, that's what I call progress.
