Late last summer my father and I spent a week in a studio recording some waltzes I've written over the past 10 years or so. We had never recorded together before, despite his lengthy career as a jazz pianist, music director, and composer and my work as a violinist/fiddler, composer, and teacher. With his 85th and my 60th birthdays approaching, this seemed like a beautiful way for us to connect and collaborate. Musically, we entered new territory for both of us ... not jazz, not fiddle music, not classical. And, because a number of the pieces were written for family members and friends, the project turned out to be a deeply emotional experience for both of us. - Judy, 2012.
