Jimmy Lloyd is creating a tv show for NBC NY non-stop. High end production, cool studio, actually the former HIT FACTORY courtesy of Gibson guitars - it was all I could do not to walk out with few choice items. Think of "the actor's studio" but with songwriters, and perhaps a little more irreverent fun.
They had everything we needed from the get go.
Our beautiful make-up technician, Amanda.
audio wizards, keen on perfection.
and singers, songwriters extraordinaire: pal Christine, and Kathleen Smith
of course, even knitting during down time.
Jimmy did one of his own songs too. accompanied by the fabulous Oscar. (hope I got that right, I'm getting really bad at names.) Ari Hest was there, but skedaddled early. Adam Levy did a beautiful song too.
I got home and told mom what I'd been up to; she burst in to her own tune, first a hymn, then "alouette, gentil alouette - je te plumerai le nez" - she's great at making up harmony. Then she always says, "hey, if we were clever, we would write a play about all this. I bet we'd make a lot of money. Are you getting this down?"
