As you, yours, me and mine know, this has been a most unusual year.
Pre-pandemic, I was working with EWU to transcribe and have some music performed from Orlando Sanchez and my newest CD, Wataino -- originally timed for this spring. And, of course as they say, the best laid plans of mice and men oft go awry, this public health crisis had other plans. Needless to say though, this too shall pass.
I recently got word from Steven Friel, professor of jazz and a colleague of mine that I was working with on this project:
"This is such an amazing project!! Bravo! I can't wait to get started on it when we can finally have things back to normal. Sadly, this will not be until Fall of 2021. As soon as we come back, this will be my first project to tackle. Thank you for your amazing work and discipline! WE WILL GET THIS PERFORMED HERE AT EASTERN!!!".
It was a nice shot in the arm not only to hear the good news that the green lights are still on, but also to think about the world going back to normal. I hope that you all will look forward to that too!
