Studio Recording of "Morning Dance"

I made a studio recording of "Morning Dance" as part of a project for a class I'm taking. A few friends asked to hear it, but I wanted to check with the copyright clearance agency beforehand. I received a reply saying it's OK to do so, as long as I don't profit (which I have no interest in doing).

Giving credit where it's due:

"Morning Dance"
Composer Jay Beckenstein (Originally played by Spyro Gyra)

Harlem Music, Inc. and Crosseyed Bear Music (BMI)

Source Track and Music Hal Leonard Publishing

Recorded at Upside Sound Studio, Ashburnham, MA

Alto and Baritone Saxophones Rick Johnson

The recording experienced allowed me to reflect on my early years. Music, in many regards, was a great diversion, diverting me from several opportunities to get into trouble. Our children could use alternative avenues to allow them to express themselves in positive, memorable ways.

The entire cost of creating this recording was under $100 (cost of the publication and two hours of recording / mixing time).

Wouldn't it be great if businesses were to sponsor awards and scholarship programs to give young talent an opportunity to make a studio recording (instrumental or vocal)?

Any degree of success with such a program could garner publication sales, increased business for small recording studios, and publicity for selected music. Supporting business can engage in a low-cost, passive social responsibility effort to benefit their local communities.

Just a thought...

Meanwhile, enjoy the recording. It was fun to make.
