Story

A brilliant performance capturing the pain one feels when wating expectantly for a telephone call that will, sadly, never be made.

You've got something that really works in your life. Why go messin' with a good thing - especially if it's love?

Here is another fantastic song from Rekha Ohal. She will often simply meditate and a song will come to her complete with characters whom she has never before met.

Story

A fun and cycnical song about how quickly people want something better at the first sign of trouble.

Lyrics

"You don't have to keep her, You could simply leave her, You don't really need her, Throw the girl away. Is your biggest nightmare Fat lady underwear? You don't have to be there Throw the girl away."

Most people dream of being on tv. What about actually living "inside" one of your favorite shows? Rekha has an incredible imagination and is not afraid to be playful in song.

Story

Phill liked what we did, as a sax/drum duo, to his song "Just Two" so much that the next week he called me and said, "Ben, I wrote this thing I call 'Ode'. I'm thinkin' sax and percussion. Sorry, I can't pay ya'... Wanna' do it?" Obviously I did. I drove to the studio with my poor old car packed with almost every percussion instrument I owned, listened to Phill play his Ode, selected my toys, the kids placed their mic.s, tape rolled, we played, and "Ode" was cut. That's Jazz... or is it?
