May brought us the music CD “east of eden” from Art Johnson. This album is based on his novel, “Marilyn, My Marilyn”. After Art wrote his book surrounding the last few months of Marilyn Monroe’s life he sat down and composed this music. Not knowing what to call the tracks, he asked me for my input. So I agreed to re-read the book and tried to feel what he wrote within the Chapters. Then I sent Art my notes and we Skyped and agreed on my titles. Please enjoy the music, but also read his book.
Early June, brought Michael Dion’s fourth book, “Music is Life…and Death”. It surrounds a songwriter who like Johnny Mercer wanted to start his own record company in 1942. This is Jack Riley’s second book and a third book is scheduled for late next year.
More books and music coming each month. So stay Tuned!!!
And Keep it Jazzy.
