After a bit of a lull over Christmas, the debut CD is near the end of the mastering phase, and should be completed shortly. The artwork is also nearing completion, so we shouldn’t be too far off of our projected early January release date (everything always seems to take a lot longer than you thought it would).
Meanwhile, back at rehearsal, the band spent most of its time this week working on Minstrel in the Corner. Although we figured we’d pretty much worked everything out on this tune, Steve came in with some cool new ideas for one of the sections, which integrated with what we were doing nicely. This song is getting nearer and nearer to completion, getting tighter with every practice, and should be done in the next few practices.
