Re ~ {re/} from latin; Preposition: About, regarding, with reference to.
Covered ~ [’k[vərd]; adj : A new recording of a contemporary or
previously recorded or popular song.

Consisting of songs from the early to mid 1900’s, I have looked back at this rich legacy to find songs and reasons for covering them.  A great song stands the test of time but may occasionally need a new frock to show it off again. RE:COVERED is a celebration of these songs and perhaps an attempt at preserving their longevity, finding some new ears or refreshing some old ones along the way.

The album is now available through the store.

Charlie and I had a blast recording my arrangement of Gershwin’s classic Summertime. At times it was hard to believe that I had a legend of New Orleans standing next to me but he was so humble and generous that it never seemed to be relevant. I have to say it was one of the easiest recording sessions I have ever had as he knew exactly what I wanted. Oh and did he swing!!!
