ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Don, at a very successful point in his music life, broke his right hand so severely he could no longer play clarinet. Playing for Warner Bros., Disney and other studios was over in a moment.

Seven years later, Don inherited his brother's piano. He began to tinker with it and write songs (without words). In less than 3 months he had written 17 and by the end of the year, over 50.

In a miraculous way, his hand was healing. It dawned on him when he was playing an octave on the piano, that he might finally be able to reach the keys of his clarinet....and he could!

During the first week of reunion with his old clarinet friend, he took an evening and ad-libbed this musical meditation journey to celebrate.

Once referred to by a Julliard jury as the "Heifetz" of clarinet, he was finally playing again....out of practice and emotional, music flowed from his mind and hands.........

We hope you enjoy this "Wandering" moment.

I''ve heard the clarinet before, but this evening I...
Really was moved by this instrument. I immediately started thinking about ways that I could exploit Mr. Baird (Who I know as a poet from allpoetry.com) and get him over here to my studio so that I could get him to play on my stuff. Here is what fascinated me about the tracks I was able to listen to. They told a story, and being a musician myself, they told a story I reconized about life, but about Mr. Baird's life, and how he has lived his life. The music comes from a very personal place from inside him, and it's that courageous link that allows the listener to really close their eyes and go for a magical trip, and let me tell you... It was hauntingly majestic in its simple ability to take you with it. It could use a poet over some of those tracks Mr. baird, hint, hint. My recommendation as someone that knows? Is buy it, and send it as a healing gift for any occassion. Word.
