Last night I dreamt that my four-year-old son and I had to get some minor brain surgery done. Who do you suppose the surgeon was? Judy Sherman, the engineer on my latest batch of recordings. The good news was that she was giving us a break on the price, because she liked me.
I was a bit nervous, but I was mostly really upset for my son, who I knew would be terrified.
Fortunately, I woke up before the procedure began, giving me a nice chance to reflect, while familiar shadows flickered across my ceiling, on the confluence between the health care debate and my protective, paternal feelings for these compositions that will soon be released into the world.
Apprehensions aside, I’m happy to report that ALBANY has come up with another lovely cover, to replace the one I wrote about here:
Release date: Feb. 1, 2010. You won’t be able to find it in any CD stores, though — because there aren’t any.
But you can always try asking for it at your nearest neurosurgeon’s.
