Hi everyone. To those who pledged since my first update, THANKS for being a part of this! Things are off to a slow start, but let's hope that things will pick up momentum after January 4th. I hope so!
A couple of days ago a friend was visiting and I played him some of the tunes from "Accents" and he commented that it might be the best Pandeiro Jazz recording to date ... nice!
Really, besides the funding situation there won't be much to update you about. I know who I want to mix and master the recording. Who I want to do the cover artwork, etc, etc.. I even know the order of the songs for the CD! Only one thing missing..... CASH! Once I have it the rest will be easy.
Wishing you all a great 2010 and I'll be in touch next week.
