It was a kick to hear a few final mixes from Paul Adams' forthcoming album Imaginings today. The last time I heard it, it was only a seed - us playing flute and piano for fun in our downtime while we were making my album. Paul has since taken it to a whole other place and been joined along the way by David Hoffman and India's Pravin Godkhindi.
I'm reminded again why Paul's musical instincts pulled me in in the first place and it felt plain right to fly to Peoria to record. His Imaginings is new age but so much more - rich, delicious, earthy, unique. Like good cake. It's taken years but it's nice to finally have not only my album in the wings but this other now too that I am so proud to be a wee part of. The next step, release and promotion still totally overwhelms most musicians including me. But right now I do have faith it will sort itself out one step at a time like all things seem to. 'One thing a day' right? And music first. It will be so nice to finally be able to share it all with you guys.
