It’s September already.
Official summer has flapped its heated wings and flown off to wherever the old months go. Schools start! The sounds of football fill the air. And songs about Autumn and all its bittersweet beauty filter through my inner jukebox. This morning my jukebox is playing my favorite singer on the planet, my beloved husband George Ball.
A few years ago, after MUCH coaxing, George and recorded a gorgeous CD, called THINK OF ME, produced and arranged by my best pal Michele Brourman and the brilliant Stephan Oberhoff.
One of the great songs on this CD was “September Song”. As Michele says, George brings that song to life in a way that lets us feel all that he’s experienced, loved, lost, learned in his life, and with one of the deepest and truest voices ever. There were moments in the studio when George’s heart and honesty brought Stephan and me to tears.
This song is one of those moments.
