Last week, I visited Sugarhill Studios in Houston to lay down a few tracks with a film crew for an upcoming video. Here’s a preview image from the session. (Photo: Sam Kuslan)
And this vital, exotic and intimate re-imagining of Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds.
More of the fine work my long-time colleague, Tony LaVorgna, has recently recorded. This waltz, which I recall with lyrics under another title, is in this version an instrumental with Tony playing all the parts. At the time he wrote it, Tony was studying with Bill Finnegan, who arranged (among many others) Glenn Miller’s Little Brown Jug. Recorded at Norman Johnson‘s studio, Manor Recording.
