Behind the Scenes With the Traveler: New Music to the Words of James Dillet Freeman
Friday, December 6, 2013
This week, the Traveler takes an unexpected turn as Cathy is interviewed by her guest host Rob Rothschild about the making of her acclaimed recording of new music to the words of Unity poet laureate James Dillet Freeman. You’ll get to go behind the scenes to see how this project came about, who played what, how and where they were recorded, and many fun facts about the process. You’ll learn how the brilliant arranger Tracy Collins gets his inspiration and hear a little-known poem that was one of James and his wife Virginia Love-Freeman’s personal favorites. Windham Hill artists George Tortorelli and Lisa Lynne, Acoustic Eidolon’s cellist Hannah Alkire, accordionist Michael Ward-Bergeman, and. Rev. Marciah McCartney all played roles in this project, plus many more!
