Hello boogie friends,
Exciting news – my “Play It Again Jan” CD is in the finishing stages! This new baby is very precious to me, I have taken time, attention, as well as passion and hard work in all aspects from the songwriting to the recording and mastering.
A huge thanks to Nigel Masters, (co producer, engineer and bass player, he can do everything!) who’s produced an amazing series of tracks in his studio in Tauranga, NZ.
Over the decades that I’ve been making albums, this is the best recording of my voice ever. Love it!
We will now embark on a national tour to launch the CD, beginning in Sydney on Oct 14th, through Victoria, SA, and ending in WA in November.
Here are some photos taken at the “Noosa Alive” Festival in July, where Rococo presented a 3 day festival on the beach.
It was great fun to play 3 handers with Wil Sargeson and The Wizard, and I thought I’d died and gone to heaven to play a white grand piano on the beach! (The closest I have previously come was teaching piano to director Jane Campion before the making of her film “The Piano”, which opens with footage of a grand piano on a wild NZ beach.)
Hope to see you soon, and we’ll be back in touch about the CD launches.
Yours in boogie and blues,
