the spanish radio piece i spoke about in an earlier post is nearing completion. my liason for the project is miguel alvarez fernandez, who translated the text i wrote into spanish and recorded the fantastic reading of it by radio clasicá personality gregorio parra. things sound sooooo much better in spanish.
i am also in the happy position of having 2 options for releasing the new CD. discussions are ongoing, but expect a late 2009 release as CD and on bandcamp.
i will be in residence as peggy baker’s accompanist this summer for various classes at the national ballet school, as well as for her yearly teacher’s seminar. playing the drums will be nice—it always is with the inimitable ms. baker.
not to mention the little hurricane that is our daughter leena.
