Nurse Jackie Finale on Showtime

I love the show Nurse Jackie, so I was thrilled that Scorchio did a session for the last song of the season finale, “One For My Baby”.
Don’t worry, there’s no spoiler alert- I want to enjoy hearing it as the last moment of the season without prior knowledge of what’s going to happen…Matt Ray is playing piano. Pat Irwin was the  composer and producer of the session. Patrick Derivaz the recording engineer par excellence. Michael Hill was the music supervisor. I don’t know who is singing, but they’re great!

i luminate ~ARTISTS OF LIGHT

I am feeling privileged to be a very small part of this show.

I played cello on several compositions by Christopher Tignor (Slow Six) really beautiful pieces~
recorded specifically for i luminate ARTIST OF LIGHT

at  The Duke Theater on 42nd streeet  11.23.12 to 01.05.13 

 

 

 

 

 

 

It’s some kind of crazy wireless lighting program that is attached to the performers outfits and linked to the music.  A light show through dance… kind of like the those laser light shows only it’s actual people dancing with cool choreography.
They were on American’s got Talent. I don’t think they won,which is probably for the best as those things go.
I’m definitely going to go see them- and not just so I can hear myself.

This is their blurb:
