Album Note

  • "Rough Ideas is a collection of the original demo versions of a dozen songs. They were recorded in my home studio to be played for producers and artists looking for material. Thanks to a multi-track recorder and my gift for performing adequately on several instruments, I am accompanied by The Band of My Dreams: ten imaginary virtuosi in purple suits who wait quietly while I figure out how the song goes, play and sing all night for free, and whose tastes and habits correspond precisely with my own. When you remember how difficult just one real musician can be, you will see why I love The Band of My Dreams.

    I re-recorded most of these songs in a Nashville studio for the Sugar Hill CD, Gentleman Of Leisure, this time with The Real Band of My Dreams - Jerry Douglas and his friends. But I still like these rough ideas."
