The Flip Side

Here is a behind-the-scenes video of an entire take of "You Made Me Love You."  It was the second recording session for our upcoming Gershwin release, and we'd been in the studio for nearly six hours and decided to knock off a couple of takes of this NON-Gershwin song for fun before we called it a day.  You can hear a preliminary mix on the "Listen" page, but this one is just the unplugged performance.   I got a (perverse!) kick out of singing a note-for-note transcription of a 1951 Judy Garland radio recording on a historical RCA-44 reproduction mic with my face lit not by the footlights, but by the glow of an ipad. 

The pianist is Jason Aquila, and Mark Flanders made the video.
