New CD Project - "Coda"

I've started a new CD project, and it is one that I have been thinking about for a long time.

When my buddy and musical co-conspirator Paul Bass died in 1999, we had some unfinished business. We had been planning on making a sixth album in our Three-Day Weekend series. We never really got out of the planning stages before his illness had progressed to the point that doing any musical work together was impossible.

I became the caretaker of all of the demos, work tapes, and writing session recordings Paul and I had made over the years. I've been going through these over the past year or so, and there are some real gems there, certainly enough for (at least) one more CD.

I've decided to title this project Coda. For the non-musicians reading this, "coda" is Italian for "tail," and in music, it is a section of music that brings a larger piece to a close. I chose this title for obvious reasons - it will bring our Three-Day Weekend series to a close.

I'll try to post some updates as I work through the material.
