2C Studios: Grand Piano

On Wednesday, master pianist Wade Preston—who played the role of the "piano man" in Broadway's "Movin' Out" some 1,400 times—was in the house to record a beautiful keyboard track for "Marquee," the title song for Karine Hannah's upcoming third album, working with Ayhan Sahin and Dennis Delgaudio.

I have quite a personal interest in the number, since I penned the original lyric. It's a dark, sparse tome about loss of hope—and ultimate redemption—that will likely serve as the closing track on Karine's project. Live cello parts will also be recorded, along with her ever-emotive vocal. I'm frothing to hear the final result.
