Thank you to all my Kickstarter backers and friends for your support for my CD, "Song For Sandy." Most of you have received your CD and other rewards. I am thrilled about how the CD sounds and the packaging looks. Sandy's Cover Art work colors are 99% true. Kudos to Disc Makers for their design and total commitment to the project.
If you'd like a CD, email me and I'll send one out to you. The cost for the CD, or the poster of Sandy's art (11"X17"), including the postage, is $15. (Postage is about $2.50 for either the CD or Poster.)
Thanks for your good ears! Support live music!
As always, you may contact me at: http://firstname.lastname@example.org
P. S. If you haven't seen the film, "Whiplash," check it out. It's an example of how not to coach musicians. Also, the documentary of Clark Terry and his blind student, is a must-see entitled, "Keep On, Keeping On."
P. S. S. We were saddened by the passing of Clark Terry a few months ago. He will be sorely missed not only by the listening public, but by his colleagues and students.
