I met Bobby Sharp in 2003 when we had the same landlord, who hired me to paint Bobby's apartment. We became friends and he gave me a song to record that he wrote in 1947 and never released: Nat King Cole was interested in it, but fell ill, and Perry Como showed interest , but lost the deal with his label. Here we are on the first day of recording. Fantasy Studios' Director Jeffrey Wood, Engineer / Mixer extraordinaire Adam Muñoz, and Bobby Sharp and I:
Bobby played the piano track. The beautiful song, "Hand In Hand", appears on my soon to be released CD. I sing it solo, and as a duet with Bobby.
Here are a few measures of what Bobby played that day: http://bit.ly/vZb6HX
