“See You in the Big Time”. New book of poems lyrics coming soon.
Apologies for the long delay since my last Blog. I had to take my summer break, plus recent work on my new book “See You in the Big Time” , editing etc. I expect to release the book in the coming week (3 October onwards).
I’ll announce this with a link to Amazon Kindle when it’s finally all ready for sale.
“Silenced By Love”.
This is a new poem, written in Milton Keynes library last Wednesday.
Silenced by Love
There’s a word that
before it gets to be thunk.Before lips move or
even the impulse to.
ceasing on the tongue.
Or softly nestle up
a small soft hand in mine.
whining loweyes looking up into mine.
each night kissesbefore sleep.
Only outside of the momentcould No exist.

Music tracks in production
I’m working with composer/musician Charles Sheinman on setting my poems lyrics to music. The pre-mastering mix of Mr. Blues was a tad scary but in a good way! I hope to share a taste of the tracks with you soon. Link: http://www.facebook.com/#!/CoolMan8
In early November I’m taking some tuition in singing phrasing with two professional jazz musicians. Andra Sparks (singing) Nick Weldon (Piano) Makes sense since quite a few of my pieces are Blues based and it should enhance my performance of the pieces live.

I was in Starbucks, Milton Keynes, drinking a large Americano when I heard Billy Holiday’s “ Good Morning Heartache” Maybe I should add this to my playlist to learn?
Here’s a link to the music:- http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RvDZOX9IdKs
That’s all for now folks.
Till my next Blog, take care.
