   For those of you who have read Time & Unforeseen Occurrence, you'll have noticed the lyrics and poetry at the beginning of, and sometimes within each chapter.  In creating and setting the mood for those chapters, I often pulled from my repertoire songs that I recorded some thirty years ago, when I was in the same age bracket as Jenny was at the start of the story.  Later on, as the story progressed, new songs came to me in keeping with the time and pace of Jenny's journey.  Some of them are recorded on Jenny's Songs Unplugged and others we're in the process of recording on the Spirit CD, due to be released next year (September, 2017).

 

   The theme song you heard when you arrived at this page is an RCA production of Bridging the Distance.  It was produced by Richard Fortin, and features Gord Sheard (of Chuck Mangione fame) playing keyboards and synthesizer.  Richard also composed and played the great guitar solo he replaced my third verse with - a difference in creative perspective we still laugh about today.  As a songwriter, I tell stories and accompany them with music, so I minded the loss of the final verse.  Richard, on the other hand, tells his stories solely with music and doesn't hold lyrics in  high esteem.  Whatever our differences in perspective,  Richard Fortin is a world class musician whom I met while working with Liona Boyd.  In my view, he is one of the best composers and musicians of our time - and I'm picky.  His site is well worth a visit (just click on his name).   Liona, a long-time friend of mine, you probably already know, but I've linked to her site as well, just in case you haven't made it over there yet.
