Album Notes
Patti Rothberg (Songwriter, musician, artist) met Lyle Puente (omni-talented producer) in February of 2011. They each had an across the board flair for the arts. Their future CD was briefly threatened when on the phone Lyle told Patti he was hanging guitars from trees, which scared her!~ They got to talking about each of their past bands and albums, They discussed Lyle's vast interest in reptiles (he is a world renowned herpetologist with a million selling book about gecko's.) puppetry, landscaping and a career in visual arts (a student of Pratt, Patti, Parsons),His elegant spiderweb pen and ink drawings grace this CD. It was revealed soon that Lyle had a complete recording studio in his basement with old vintage gear and before long the two artists were in their playground.
Many of the tracks have a mournful tone which prophetically match the title track, Black Widow. It was written October 4th of that same year in tribute to Steve Mach, musician/cat rescuer. Only 2 weeks before his untimely death, Steve and Patti were getting to know her. The timing was all so strange. The story keeps unfolding much like a web, and the main difference in style is due to the overall use of piano, which Patti had learned classically since age 3 an abandoned it for guitar at age 12. So many emotions went through this album's creation including the joy of melding like- minds, sorrow and loss, and a regained love of piano, and creating music in a new way.
In some ways, Patti likens Black Widow to Between the One and the Nine because there were no preconceived notions about how it had to be. The tracks vary in style, and it was just me and Lyle making the music unsupervised! It's like a first album all over again!
