So far, I’m keeping my New Year’s resolution to compose one song a month this year. The April song is, I admit, a little late, but as far as I’m concerned it still counts. I’m a software product manager, and so used to slipping deadlines by a week or two.
This tune, “Are You Out Of your Mind?” is dedicated to Sheila Jordan, the legendary singer and vocal teacher and mentor, who I have had the pleasure of learning from and hearing at the Vermont Jazz Center summer workshop over the past several years.
This is something that Sheila has been known to say, when things are starting to go too far.
Here’s a rough demo recording. Hope you enjoy it!
