Resurrection (1992) Recorded in Jo’s apartment (across from the shady paint factory in Glen Cove, Long Island) on a lousy keyboard that I eventually traded in for my Kurzweil, drinking coffee at 2am using my temperamental little panasonic tape deck that didn’t always record.
Once (1992) Recorded Jo’s apartment, again using her tape deck but this time on her beloved acoustic upright piano Kawaii named Kwi in the afternoon, still across that lousy yet wonderful tacky paint factory in Glen Cove Long Island.
Angels In Concrete (2009) Written for, but sadly not used in a good classic shower scene in, Steve Balderson’s Film Stuck starring Karen Black. Steve wanted to use it, but the music director didn’t include it in the final film score.
Queer Reprise (2009)
Yorga’s Hunting Again (2009) My little tabby guy George’s given gypsy name is Yorga, a persona he adopts while hunting imaginary prey in the middle of the night or late afternoons.
