A Place

This song was recorded in 1995? at UMKC recording studio. The piano, drums and vocals were tracked in the White Recital Hall. Rick had written the music on piano and I had written a poem. We agreed to put them together and make a song. I remember writing the bass line while the engineer was setting up record levels (which is so unlike me). I had a bass line prepared, but was inspired by Brad to re-write the part to match what he was doing on the drums. At one point the engineer scolded me from the control room thru the headphones by yelling, "Stop writing your bass line!". Here are the players: Rick Oxley (piano/keys/guitar), Brad Grandon (drums), Virgel (bass/vocal).
