HEARTbeats recording session with Jessye Norman

I know I’ve been negligent with my blogging but if nothing else, it has been for good reason. My performing schedule has been jam packed this season; so much that I’ve been reduced to tweeting rather than blogging. But the other reason is becasue of a great deal of important work with the HEARTbeats Foundation, which my wife and I founded this year. Two important projects from that work are filling most of my December days, the first was a recording session with the incomparable Jessye Norman that includes the two of us playing together for one of the tracks from our upcoming benefit album, They Are Why We Sing and the other is our inaugural service trip to Kathmandu, Nepal…

The recording session with Jessye was an absolute delight, I’ll be writing more about what we recorded and how it went next month but in the meantime, I wanted to post some of the photos from the session. Besides Jessye and myself, the session was produced by Helen Nightengale and Alan Abrahams and engineered by Fred Vogler. The photographs were taken by Chad Batka and I love all of them; these are just a handful of the ones which caught my eye but I’m sure we’ll be posting more at the foundation website soon.

Our trip to Nepal is going to be a wonderful undertaking, the foundation’s vice president for marketing and communication released the official press release earlier this week and we’ll be blogging about our work the entire time we’re there at  www.heartbeatsforchildren.org/nepal2010.
