Here’s a quick story about the recording. I have a tendency to lose things, so when I started thinking about what songs to use, I remembered two I had written in the early 1980s, but I couldn’t find them! I looked everywhere. I gave up finding them. Then, much later as I was cleaning out the basement (it was a horrible mess), I pulled junk out of an old box, and there on the bottom were the two handwritten scores! They were the title track, “MacDougal St., NYC” and “Oyster Bay LI”. Funny the way life goes sometimes…

Visions Within, my collaboration with Meryl Streep and the New York Voices was released in 1995. Now, I am excited to announce that one of my choral compositions from that recording will have its U.S. performance premier on Long Island in April. The marvelous professional chorus Singers of Long Island will debut the piece on Sunday, April 2 at 2:30 at the Freeport Public Library, 144 W. Merrick Rd. in Freeport, and Wednesday, April 5 at 7:00 at Bellport High School, 205 Beaver Dam Rd. in Bellport. Visions Within consists of my vocal settings of Rainer Maria Rilke’s poems, recorded by the New York Voices and narrated by Meryl Streep. Rilke’s haunting poetry comes alive with the ancient sound of chant transformed through the lush chords of jazz and contemporary choral works. I hope you’ll join me for one of these very special performances. To PURCHASE Visions Within go to msrcd.com/catalog/cd/MS1215. (You can hear excerpts here.)

That this choral debut is happening at the same time that my two-CD jazz recording, MacDougal St., NYC is being released is tremendously exciting! Stay tuned for news about the CD release party in May!
