Notes on the recording...

Song Sessions Volume 1 was recorded, mixed and mastered by Butch Rovan at MEME Studios, Brown University, between December 2008 and January 2009. Most of the songs were recorded during an intense week of sessions in early December 2008. Additional overdubs were completed during a second set of sessions as the snow fell on Providence in late December.

Our most heartfelt thanks go to the Music 450 "House Band" : Nate Sloan, piano; Dave Harrington, bass; Ian Sims, drums. They did a remarkable job of learning a wide array of new songs and laying down many takes, all under tight time constraints. Thanks also go to the other musicians who participated in the sessions (for a complete listing see the inside cover of the CD).

This project would not have been possible without the generosity of:
Jim Moses, Nate Sloan, and Doug Berman, who helped in the studio;
and Joan Rovan ( who designed the CD graphics.
Special thanks to Barbara Sardy and Sara Walsh for their organizational help.
