Magic Night

There are moments that we would all wish could last forever. That first kiss, watching a beautiful sunset, a flat tire…well maybe not the last one, but you get the idea. Well on our now semi usual Tuesday recording session at Big Dave Swanson’s studio in Avon. The moments we wanted to last forever were playing two more new tunes for Robert C. Fullerton’s new album. After I laid down the drums on Let it Rain, Robert wanted to run his new tune Phoebe. I had done my homework and listened to the demo Robert sent me of the tune. I was struck by the subtle depth of emotion on this one and it brought me back to when I would listen to Allison Krauss and Robert Plant’s duet album. It was during that time that my mother was in treatment for her cancer that ultimately took her life. There was a tune on their album that just captured the sadness I was feeling. As I listened to Robert’s tune I remembered that song and went back and listened to it. The song is amazing and I listened to how simply the drummer played the song and thought about how you don’t need to say a lot to make a point, so that’s what I did…played simply and for the song. As soon as we finished the track and the tape stopped rolling, Robert said “I think that was magic”.

I am so grateful to be a part of this project and how it is helping us all make something beautiful in our lives. It is easy to look around and see the world in such turmoil, unbalanced and fraught with unease. I like to think that we are doing the opposite and helping to make the world a better place through our music. Tonight I don’t have a lot to say, so I am going to keep it brief. The project is getting better every time we get together at Dave’s studio. I am looking forward to hearing it in it’s completed form and getting to share with all my family and friends. Thank you for reading and until our next Tuesday, farewell…
