We savor the moment, the meal, the day. Yet, how often do we savor the music? Last night, Terri, me, and Jessica (Octave's director) got our first listen to an extraordinary new talent: Clay Rose, the lead singer, and songwriter of the unlikely named group The Gasoline Lollipops. Why am I bringing this to your attention? Simple. I wanted to share with you the extraordinary experience we three listeners had. Our job last night was to critically evaluate the mix and recording: taking careful notes to put the finishing touches on the work. In other words, to make sure it meets the standards for Octave Records and point out where it doesn't so that the engineers could fix it. We managed to do the work but only barely. As the singer's voice and poetry reached down deep inside, tears streamed down all three of our faces. I found myself so immersed in the story I was lost. I was savoring the music. Ignoring the stereo. Not doing my job. What a blessed joy that was. Look for the release of Nightmare in April.
