ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Don't Ask
2003
Produced by Bill Braun
All songs written and performed by Danny O'Keefe and Bill Braun

Well, boys and girls, after years, months, days, and many many minutes, I can finally bring you the good news: The new CD is finished and ready for your perusal and hopefully, appreciation and purchase. What's the new CD called, you ask? "Don't Ask". Who's on first? "Don't
Ask". Before I tell you more about the CD, however, let me introduce you to my collaborator, Bill Braun.

I've known Bill for thirty years. I first met him when the band he was in joined me on the road to tour behind "Breezy Stories". Bill and I started writing together in the Eighties. He comes out of a completely different musical direction than I do and it can be very freeing to have someone driving the music so that you can ride the lyrics without having to fight the same ruts on the guitar. We've written and recorded several songs together prior to this album. One of the most beautiful pieces I've written with him became a wonderful guitar song: "Pieces of the Rain",
which is on Runnin' From The Devil.

In song, music is the question that begs the answer. This collection of songs, "Don't Ask", has been growing since the Nineties and a year ago I finally got Bill to transfer them to a digital format so that they could be remixed. I think in the transfer process Bill became re-inspired with them and he has deconstructed and reconstructed them into their present forms. The real test for me is repetition and time. I not only haven't grown tired of them with repeated listening, but I continue to find new things in them. I hope you'll feel the same.

Bill Braun says:

Having spent some formative years in a TV-free house, I was exposed to the music of a lot of great musicians and writers (thanks to my father's passion for jazz and musicals), and I was inspired to play music. I was fortunate to have had the opportunity to go on the road with Danny O'Keefe when he released 'Breezy Stories' - a great collection of songs produced by Arif Mardin, featuring great players like Donny Hathaway, Airto Moreira, Dr. John, among others. It was Danny's unique sense of lyricism and free harmonic concept that inspired me to pursue a song writing relationship with him several years later, and we've been writing songs together since
then.

Nowadays, I'm making up for any preadolescent TV deprivation I might have suffered by watching a mind-numbing daily dose of anything, as long as it's pixelated. Which leads me to believe that I too, am in danger of becoming 'King of the Blue Glow' - one of the tunes Danny and I have written on 'Don't Ask'.

Hope you dig it.
