(Notes by Cheryl Hodge:)

1. Blessed Be The Day ( ) - music/lyrics by Cheryl Hodge
Sometimes the most valuable relationship happens when a one you thought was lost to you returns!

2. Babylon Sisters ( ) - music/lyrics by Walter Becker & Donald Fagen (Wixen Music Publishing, Inc.)
I imagined a "jazz musician's graveyard" in the middle of Tijuana when we did this version. Josh got it.

3. It Ain't Necessarily So ( ) - music/lyrics by George & Ira Gershwin
This reflects my love for raucous, unapologetic bluesy jazz standards.

4. Cara Mia ( ) - music/lyrics by Cheryl Hodge
A tourist loses their way in Europe and finds love. Just a fun jaunt all rolled up into a salsa.

5. Naima ( ) - music by John Coltrane/lyrics by Jon Hendricks
Jon Hendricks wrote these delicious lyrics to the Coltrane masterpiece; and my,oh,my; John Stowell's guitar!

6. Tree People ( ) - music/lyrics by Cheryl Hodge
Released as a single; won Best Jazz Song 2013 (Hollywood Music In Media Awards), this tells of the plight of the Awa Tribe; an endangered people due to the relentless logging/burning of the Amazon rainforest.

7. Infant Eyes ( ) - music by Wayne Shorter/lyrics by Cheryl Hodge
The lyrics I penned to this Shorter classic are about my now grown son, Dylan Hodge (this is for you, hon!)

Recorded by Mike Doolin “ House of Doolescu” (Portland, OR), Brian Cunningham “Sharp Nine Recording Studio” (Bellingham, WA), and Sacha Muller (percussion tracks on Cara Mia) at Clackamas Community College. Mixed by Brian Cunningham & Cheryl Hodge
Mastered, made and manufactured in U.S. at Nettleingham Audio, Portland, OR. Photographs: Allana Haradyn. Cover: William Rink

Weird witch of the woods
I’m not a critic. I don’t like using adjectives like brilliant, stunning, astounding … But I sometimes wonder if Cheryl Hodge has an extra pair of lungs. These vocals: fifty shades of colour. Sometimes it’s the voice of a ten year old girl, sometime you hear the weird witch of the woods. The solo’s, the rhythm, the complex, unobtrusive harmonies, the effective piano… There’s a good find around every corner. It’s all there, inventive, masterful, wonderfully rich, to be enjoyed for a long, long time!

These vocals: fifty shades of colour, sometimes a ten year old girl, sometimes the weird witch of the woods.
