#6 - Whirlwind Medusa, Classical recordings and more

In this episode of the Casey Stratton Podcast I discuss recording Whirlwind Medusa and also talk about recording classical pieces. Within the scope of discussing Whirlwind I also talk in length about my publishing contract with Rondor Music International. I finish up with a live performance of The Path. Music recommendation for this week is Jonatha Brooke's 10 Cent Wings.

...her followup solo effort, 10 Cent Wings, is filled with the sort of sly phrases and lush pop arrangements that made the Story so enjoyable. At times Brooke stretches her literary conceits too far, but her keyboardist/producer/arranger/husband Alain Mallet always wraps her appealing melodies in quirky, thickened chamber-pop arrangements. On the best songs--most notably "Glass Half Empty" and "Last Innocent Year"--Brooke has recovered the momentum of a most promising career. --Geoffrey Hime
