Goodbye, My Voyager

This song was written as a send-off for my mother as she continues her infinite voyage. As we were rehearsing it, one of the band members, I can't recall who (pianist Barney McAll, bass player Jonathan Maron, and drummer Adam Gold) noted that it reminded them of the music of George Shearing of "Lullaby of Birdland" fame and I realized that I had always loved that song - it was the final track and only cover on my very first album, "Deranged", recorded when I was 14.

Co-producer Greta Gertler Gold had the inspiration to invite a child to sing with me on the chorus, adding a haunting and poignant layer. The child turned out to be the amazingly prepossessed and talented Mirabelle Struck, daughter of brilliant pianist Deidre Rodman Struck. Thank you, Greta and Mirabelle!
