Sunday May 27th:
This weekend was great so far.
I got to spend time with some music and really focus on the next releases. I listened to music from pretty much every decade enjoying the vocals and how the music reflected that era. It’s interesting when you listen in 10 year spans, to hear how things change and how some things come full circle. Music certainly has a life.
Sometimes the best Sundays are the ones when you take the time out to focus on your future and reflect on what you’ve achieved thus far. We need to stand still for a minute to make good decisions.
My sincerest thanks for all your sweet letters of support on this project. It means alot to me. This project had me singing songs originating as far back as the 30’s onto today. I love every song in the project. I could not have written better music.
There is something about this song that just relaxes me. I don’t know if it’s the melody or the lyrics but since I first heard it in 1999, I had always intended on recording it. The song was written by singer/songwriter Jesse Harris & the Ferdinandos (Tony Scherr, Tim Luntzel, and Kenny Wollesen). They have 3 terrific albums on Verve Records.
Don’t you just love songs that keep you humming long after you’ve heard it? This song is like that for me. “Will You Still Love Me” was written by Gerry Goffin and Carole King, two of my favorite writers. The Shirelles originally recorded the song in the 60’s and took it to #1 on Billboards Hot 100 in 61. This recording is the 3rd song on the project I worked on a few years ago. I hope that you’ll enjoy my versions as much as I enjoyed singing them. Thanks for watching 🙂
