Description
This track was a bit of a stretch for all involved .... as many of my projects seem to be. I sent Anne a "mumbly" guide track with just a melody idea and 2 obscure lines. She never laughs out loud when I do that. Thanks Sis. What she came up with was another example of why I consider her one of tuhe best. Vic always makes me smile and sound so much better. Andy added some final glitter even though he was extremely busy. All in all I am indebted once again to this wonderful crew.

Anne asked for an explanation of what I was thinking and I told her a story.
Once upon a time .... He was just a cat huh?


Anne Cozean: Vocals and Lyrics
Vic Holman: Guitars
Awigze: Sax
Studio Band consisted of drums, Chinese Guzheng Zither, Cello section and French Horn section. (Zither,Cellos and French Horns structured in GB final mix Logic)

..... additional stuff: A nod to Bowman (Charlie). I listened to several of his compositions trying to sort out the orchestra. He has such a great way of creating space. I couldn't get it right like Charlie but I sure enjoyed trying. Also a nod to Outtaorbit (Patrick) .... it's a "dirge" isn't it?

Lyrics
Grace
(Cozean/Hemby)


In the sweet September days of life now left to me I recall
shutting out all those who offered me their love
however small

You saw a soul who needed you and you began
to open up my frozen heart and settle in

In the golden days of life that are now left to me I can see
that the bravest thing you've ever done was reach inside
and rescue me

You saw a soul who needed you and you began
to open up my frozen heart and settle in

Golden days
Golden days

.... been thinking about you and hope all is well. the original title of this was "lost/uncertain" ... maybe that translated. Vic is such an MJ treasure it was amazing when he said "yes".... anne... good grief...anne. Andy always tries to save me in a pinch and he nailed this. Thanks Harold.

MJ's resident cat herder strikes again, and this time herded some of the best cats that MJ has to offer. Cool beans as your neighbor says. Seriously.

Oh yes!
I haven't been around for a while, but this is definitely drawing me back. Wonderful job everyone, and once again, a classic song from you Jack, ably assisted by Anne. Vic and Andy add beautiful parts, and the haunting Studio Band contribution is very beautiful indeed. Lovely vocals Anne! Beautiful mix too.
Cheers from Oz,

cat's pajamas
and I have to tell everyone that when I whined and moaned about the low key (EVERYone knows i have a 2 note range!), Jack calmly counseled me to "embrace the low." so i french kissed that sucker with all my might. cuz Jack's the boss. 8) it's a lovely place to be in the midst of all you boyz!

Epic dimension...
...and hints of Eastern mysticism. What a wonderful concept that is beautifully played out with a complex orchestration that feels to natural and transparent. Quite a feat of collaboration, guys and gal...Really mesmerizing sounds floating out from every measure of this sombre composition. Much to learn here... Nothing to complain about here; just magical music making. (And, I think, definitely NOT a dirge. Rather, a thoughtful exploration of lyrics served by equally thoughtful musical expression.) Congrats to all.

... anne had to push a bit on this lower register ... she kept saying it was beyond her ... she was so wrong... she nailed it. Vic just finds his way thru anything i suppose. Never stumped him and always been floored at his magic. Andy know me well by now... hasn't run away yet. I am happy he hasn't cos his sax is art on anything he does .... all it all this was easy for me so.... Kudos to Anne, Vic and Andy indeed. Hope all is well my friend.

An
inspiring piece of music with a great haunting mystical vibe, something I always love to hear. The instrumentation is wonderful and the vocals are just superb.
Nice percussion on the intro leading into the low register vocals, a great touch!
A real pro quality production Jack, I love this!

Anne's kiss
Well yea and I agree with Vic. Anne stole the show and rightfully so. I always love Jack's hands off approach on songs of this styling. In an email, Anne mentioned how hearing the individual personalities in the song was apparent . Vic's role in this was key for me in adding my part so glad that it was there Yay us! Looking forward to another collaboration with you all again.

You began..
"..you began to open up my frozen heart and settle in..." The whole story of this song resonates to me. The touches and artists add the spices
that make me, like when eating a very tasty meal, feel "Umm!" Thanks for dl. It's none of my business, but I'm curious who Mr. Gold is too.

pretty easy here ... most of the tracks were drop and play pre-mixed (!) and all we had to worry about were chairs on the stage. anne is a great listener and she blazed the trail with perfect lyrics and a beauty of a performance. Vic .... well Vic spooks me. He is so darn good. Andy has been with me for a bunch of things and always makes me smile. We appreciate the kind words my friend ... we all do Thanks!
