I have had the most fun making this album for you, despite myStoneface expressions in the paintings. From the first basic track,down to the
last mandolin pluck, my mission was to fully inhabit each part as if I were a
distinct player/personality, with all of their strengths and faults, much like a
method actor would inhabit their role. Thanks to Will for getting into his part
as well with the genuine enthusiasm and talent he is so famous for.
I have many people to thank for this 10th “portrait” in music.
First, to my Mother for love and vision of my unlimited self. To Marty, Robin,
and Ed; music educators for instructing me in the same and expanding my
growing palette. And to Lionel and Leonard for seeing me through
to the present, allowing me to serve their songs in
whatever way they may desire.
This project would not be possible without the understanding of my
family, Jonna, Fionn, Lil’Louis, and my love, Dania. Thank you for allowing me
to check out for a month and do my work no one could possibly care about
more than you.
To my friends and steadfast listeners who always wanted me to
“shuddup and play more horn”; this one is for you.
