We are currently looking for string players to start recording The River – the vocals will be recorded separately. A ton of video has been collected and is being edited to start the lyric video portion of the project. I have decided to post a computer mock-up of the entire work in the John Stak music section. All the piano parts represent the vocal melodies. Individual snippets of each movement, descriptions, and lyric examples are still in the music section of The River website.
Jazz Heritage Foundation Grant Ceremony
Thanks again to the Jazz and Heritage Foundation for awarding us a grant for the production of the The River. This is an amazing honor!
Jazz Fest Grant Awarded!
We’ve been awarded a Jazz Fest Grant for the production of The River! That is great news, thank you to The New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Foundation for this possibility. That’s wonderful news!
With the demise of Flash, and my old site getting long in the tooth (with Flash), it’s time to redo my site and create something better for The River project, currently being composed.
