First off let me tell you that for the first
time in our 9 1/2 year history of Sunday evening jazz we have to sold out shows
tomorrow for the concert Kind Of Blue. Thank you to all who are coming for

Feed The Muse Campaign to pre-sell the CD continues. You can go to
http://www.feedthemuse.net/vivianlee to contribute or
pre-purchase the CD. If you go to the feed-the-muse page you will find all of the
different levels and fan benefits available for those who pre-purchase My Heroes
Have Always Been Singers. If you aren't comfortable with doing business online
you can still be a part of it all by mailing a check to Vivian Lee 4706 Acclaro
Ct Antelope, Ca 95843. Don't forget that 10% of what is left after production
and then 10% of each CD sold will be donated to the Breast Cancer Research Foundation
in honor of Anne Gipson, who passed away in 1988 from this dreaded disease.
Here is what is happening in the progress of
the project. Darius and Jeff went into the studio with me Tuesday evening
and we recorded their tracks for five songs and they sound amazing. This week
I am going to record the vocal tracks for At Long Last Love, send my photos
and other art work over the Shawna at Unisette and let her work her magic on a CD
booklet and CD label. Then it will be time to send everything over the Discmakers
to reproduce the CD.
Here's Darius in the studio recording his tracks for Summer Samba.
Have a great week and I hope to see you
Wednesday evening at the Downtown Central Library.
