More Pearls

SFR 357.6041.2

“More Pearls came out of a casual conversation Günter and I had in early 2005.   We were on another subject when he asked if I'd ever considered making a collection of songs by other songwriters ("evergreens," he called them).   Truth is I'd been thinking about it for years but had never really honed in on such a project … until that moment.   "Let me choose some songs" I replied, "and tell me what you think of the list."   A few short weeks later I was back in Northeim at Stockfisch with Chris Jones.”

“As I thought about what it was with these particular songs and writers that drew me near, I was also reminded where I'd first heard each one and how they'd made their mark in my psyche and helped guide me down this path.   All are joined with a thread that weaves compassion, empathy, longing, freedom, justice, wonder, reflection, peace, and humility.   Though it's been years since I've played some, like cherished old friends they've been exhilarating to revisit, relearn, rediscover, and gain new insight from.”
