We have so much to be thankful for. The addition of Patrick Russini on drums provided a breath of fresh air to our group and I personally had so much fun playing during our last rehearsal. I believe Pat is the glue who will solidify our band. Regarding the album, people have emerged from the woodwork to help us make our album special. Debbie Stern, David Dolnick, Al Torchia, and Shaun Hopper are all adding their spectacular skills to our effort. My son, Daniel Schulman of Schulman Media, is working with me on cover art for the album. I started doing some preliminary mixing to get a sense of what we have and I am so excited about what is unfolding. The target for completion of the recording process is December 31, and then we work on mixing and mastering. I am grateful for bandmates, Jeff Hocker, Tony Sheppard, Culynn Murdock, and Patrick Russini for being my partners in this endeavor.
