Greetings & Music News
I appreciate your patience as I transition the website from Tammerlin to Lee Hunter Music. It continues to be slow going, but it will get there!
We're making great progess on the CD recording of "A Vision Awakening-A Celebration of the Cummer Gardens and the St. Johns River", the concert that Philip Pan, Charlotte Mabrey and I created in celebration of the gardens and the St. Johns River. The CD will be a part of an exciting exhibition that opens at the Cummer this month called "Reflections" which will focus on the St. Johns River, the heart and heartbeat of our city. We've just wrapped up the tracking at Gatorbone Studios in Keystone. The whole process has been pretty magical. Kevin Bodge and Barbara Colaciello, who were both part of the original performance, are also involved with the recording. Lon Williamson did some great bass parts in addition to contributing his superb engineering skills. Lis Williamson did some narration and backing vocals, just lovely, and Gabe Valla wrote and performed some exquisite transitional music for the project. It is now in the skilled hands and ears of Pete Winter at Winterstone Productions in Tallahassee. Arvid and I recorded our last four CDs with Pete, so I know the final result will be just what we want. The exhibition opens February 24. Our CD release celebration is April 14 and we'll be doing another concert performance on June 7.
Lots of visits from friends coming up! Joe Craven will be here in March. I've been helping him put some workshops together. He'll be doing a school program for Beth Judy's foundation, the Live Oak Music and Arts Foundation. He is also offering an improvisation workshop here in Jacksonville at the Ronan School of Music. Stay tuned for more information about that. Nikki Talley and Jason Sharp will be here in March, too. Nikki and I are doing a songwriting workshop and Nikki and Jason and Joey and I will be doing a show at Mudville Grille. Mary-Lou (Jean-Luc, Felicie and Stephane) will be here in April, visiting from France. Yeah! Joey and I will be doing some shows with them, too.
For all of you Pandora subscribers, you can now listen to Tammerlin's "No Small Thing" CD on Pandora!
During this transition, the Tammerlin website will still be accessible. I will no longer be posting to the Tammerlin Facebook page. I've just launched the "Lee Hunter Music" Facebook page. I'll be posting there. You can find it at www.facebook.com/pages/Lee-Hunter-Music/
I hope to see you out there somewhere.
Remember, all dates are subject to change, so you should contact the venue to confirm.

Just plugging away, I suppose. The muse has struck once again, thankfully. There's a lot of inspiration in my life right now. I'm pleased to have several new songs in the works. Perhaps one or more of them will be ready soon. I've also stumbled upon a couple of wonderful songs that I'd like to cover. Joey and I are working on it!
This whole past month I have been in the thick of producing the CD, "A Vision Awakening". It has truly been a magical collaboration and an emotionally uplifting time. The CD is just a part of a huge event for the Cummer Museum, the City of Jacksonville, the St. Johns Riverkeeper and all of us who love and care about the river. It's really an honor to be a part of it and to have the opportunity to create this work with my dear and talented friends. I don't think it gets any better than this.
Be well, Lee
