Story

I asked Mary if she would like to record a Christmas song for a benefit CD I am producing. She was very excited and the two of us began singing ideas to each other over the phone... Mary thought of the modulation, I came up with the groove. She met Eric Thorin (bass) and Vlad Girshevich (piano) for the first time in the studio an hour before we began recording! We were all listening intently to the playback and suddenly began to smile at each other. We knew we were on to something... Mary later said she'd love to do an entire record together with the trio.
