The story behind Passion Day began when I was driving home from a gig and listening to a talk radio discussion about the Battle of Passchendaele. For some reason I thought I heard “passion day,” due to the loss of hearing from the gig. Reaching home late that night I began defining the word passion, still not connecting the spellings. :) When that connection arose so did the breadth of meaning. No music yet - just writing ideas and reading about this time in WW1. Conversations began with the trio and I asked James Robbins to come in as a singer and lyricist. More talking and sharing notes for possible lyrics continued. Rehearsing with Michael Sauri and Jean Paul Gaster as always is an immediate whirlpool of ideas and development. I believe we went to the studio with a good understanding of arrangements but much sculpting happened while tracking. The big surprise happened when we heard what J. Robbins had settled on. Stellar! Yes, stellar! Keyboards overdubs with Chris Brooks playing and putting down ideas like he was tracking with us! Then to mix at Wrightway Studios where Steve Wright really opened up the sonic possibilities. It was quite an undertaking, as all projects are.

Big Time! The whole tree falls in the woods thing. Well if I make a cd and no one listens that is a sad day. Well more than a day. This 5 song work has taken about 2 years to complete. Many steps: writing , selecting, arranging, rehearsing, re-writing, rehearsing, pre-production, lots of wondering if it will work, selecting studio, continually discussing the concept, raising money for the studio, recording, over dubs, mixing, mastering, developing art work, paying for it, it is an expensive undertaking. If you really want a breakdown message me, re-doing art work, having the cds made, waiting. Voila a CD!
So when you take the time to listen and enjoy the Music; that is Everything! THANKS, Jay A Turner
