"CLOSE ENOUGH FOR LOVE" by Johnny Mandel and Paul Williams

Rehearsing for VALENTINE
Standing: Michael Mishaw, Guest Dori Caymmi
l to r: Guest Alvin Chea, Morgan Ames, Sheri Izzard,
Shelby Flint, Julie Delgado


Well, not exactly a plot. We've completed our new album: VALENTINE This is the project we've waited years to make. It's by far the best we've got to give. We fell into these love songs like a lake. Some are original (Shelby's Paper Boat, Morgan's Quietly There). Some are quirky standards (Paul Simon's 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover) and one is a classic (My Funny Valentine). We were privileged to work with the great Brazilian Dori Caymmi on his song, O Cantador (Like a Lover). The one-of-a-kind Alvin Chea, famed for his bass lines in Take 6, joins us on several songs. The CD is a generous 50 plus minutes and 17 songs.
