We'll have a great band including long time James Taylor sideman and A-List studio musician, Leland Sklar, on the bass. Gregg Bissonette (Santana, Ray Charles, Steve Vai, etc) will be on drums. We'll be joined by one of our favorite pianists, Andy Langham and Jerry Holland will fill out the band on electric and acoustic guitar. When we walk out of the Village that day we'll have a smoking track ready for vocals.
One of the incentives for my Kickstarter contributors was a visit to the recording studio and that will likely happen during the mix session at Skywalker Studio in San Rafael. Leslie Ann Jones will be at the helm all the way through the project.

When the mix is finished and ready for release we'll have a grand celebration at Yoshi's San Francisco on Sunday, November 18th. Start warming up those vocal cords because I'm going to invite the audience to join me on stage to sing along to the new single.
A giant THANK YOU to everyone who kicked in and for everyone who wished me well with this project. I feel like George Bailey, the luckiest man (woman!) in Bedford Falls!
