Thursday June 9th/11

Actually had a day off from teaching which is rare these days although I'm not complaining. Had a chance to practise today. Worked on some jazz standards ("How Deep Is The Ocean?", The Night Has A Thousand Eyes" and "Falling Grace". Man that 's a tough tune. Did a bit of mixing today in my studio. Just finishing up a recording project with a great singer/songwriter Tracey Dey. The project is sounding fantastic. Great band too. Mark Kelso on drums, Kevin Turcotte on trumpet, Chris Banks on bass, Jake Chisholm on lap steel and myself on various guitars and mandolin. Look out for Tracey Dey as she will be making some waves when this record comes out. We are doing a 6 song EP.

Listened to Chick Corea's "Now He Sings, Now He Sobs". Man what a killin' record. Roy Haynes on drums and Miroslav Vitous on bass. 1968 and it still sounds current.
