Sometimes I wish I was better about recording every show, and recording some of them really fancy. Seems it's always been a vibe-ruining headache to get it together, and the magic doesn't show up. Who knows. This show did get recorded pretty well, though, and it was a truly beautiful night. I was thinking of my friend Jon, who used to sing for Sense Field and lotsa other bands. I was going to break it up into separate tracks, but the show really felt like one long poem to him or something, so I just left it all together. I love sharing stuff like this, stuff that bridges the personal and performance parts. I love especially sharing it with this little crew of people helping me have the room to settle in and see what kind of beauty can happen with as little pressure and obligation as possible. Thank you. Enjoy.
