Session Notes

This song was lifted from my unreleased album “Shovel Of Dirt” and moved to this project to contribute something to the album a bit more positive, in the face of so many lyrics inspired by the dramatic fatalism of flamenco. It was actually inspired by farmland outside my hometown, and one particular area where I camped out a lot during my high school years. I spent some wonderful times around farms growing up in Central Illinois and afterwards while attending the University of Iowa. The main guitar, my cello parts and Jimmy Haslip’s bass were cut back in the mid 90s, along with Julie Christensen’s and my background vocals – with all the other elements overdubbed for this project.
