Last week I made a whole bunch of radio edits for “The Scent of Light”. Very strange, to try to condense an 8 minute piece into a mere 3 1/2 minutes. Like cutting adjectives out of a sentence… Although, in some cases a very different song appeared, which made the editing/shortening process interesting.
Early morning walk in Tucson.
Sitting in “Shot in the Dark” in Tucson with Jon. Good coffee and free Wi-Fi. 100Âº in Tucson today, 108Âº in Phoenix tomorrow.
Back at the Fox they are changing the sign:
C suggested that the editing might be similar to removing vowels…

Maybe I’ll post one or two of the edits here. In some cases a new piece appears and it’s nice.
PS: The audience at the Fox in Tucson tonight was fantastic. Thank you!!

WOW!!! What an awesome performance in Tucson. It was our 4 year wedding anniversary, and this was a very special treat. You guys played sooooooo good. THANKS Ottmar and Luna Negra!!
Much gratitude for enchanting musical experience. Thank you for choosing Tucson to be the starting point for this concert tour series. I published my review (with highest recommendations, of course) online.
