Time to Time
At the time I was working at a music house, JoyArt, and learning a whole lot from Butch Stewart whose shop it was.At the time I actually had a few nickels to rub together, or put differently; I was not married and had no children. So…I could afford to be extravagant with the music that I wanted to record.
I had come to know Arne Roth who knew many members of the amazing Chicago Symphony. So putting 2 & 2 together meant that I would finally be able to record FROM TIME TO TIME, which was a broad stroke guitar based composition I had been harboring for years.
I asked my orchestral wingman Doug Howell to go to work on a section; asked Arne if I could hire a good portion of the orchestra; and practiced the nylon string guitar like a madman. I must say that of all the hundreds of songs & compositions I written over the years, I’m struck by the emotional range and the pureness of the intent. Hope you enjoy…it’s a bit of a ride.
