WINTER 2010/2011 EDITION
It has already been one of the snowiest winters in recent memory. As I look out my window, still more is coming down. However, weather notwithstanding, our year is off to a brisk start!
If we are new to you, Jon Gordon Music Production is a prime provider of audio and music recording and production services. We can tailor our approach to your needs. Studio tours, consultations, budget estimates, etc. are available free, on request. Here is our current news:
Kantor and Dorn - Women of a Certain Age DVD
Karen Kantor and Margaret Dorn are co-writers of the show "Women of a Certain Age," that has been making the rounds in NYC area clubs. If you haven't had a chance to see it, the current lineup of the show features four of New York's very best female singers, Margaret, Andricka Hall, Carolee Goodgold and Emily Bindiger, in a moving and truly virtuosic display of solo and ensemble singing. The songs are wonderful, and Margaret Dorn sets off the adept band arrangements with her stunning vocal arrangements.
This same lineup was recently captured on video to create a performance DVD of the show. To show off the music to best advantage, Karen and Margaret came in for a couple of intense days to remix the sound track from scratch. JGMP is very proud to have been selected for this key job, and to play a role in the evolution of this wonderful show!

MISC. JGMP NEWSF
Eytan Mirsky was in to record a theme song for "MugBop," an as yet unreleased webcast show. In a related item: A talented young singer named Karen Rodriguez, whom I first met when she came in at the age of 15 to record Eytan's songs for the Todd Solondz film "Palindromes," and whose demo I recorded some years later, is now a contestant on American Idol. If Karen wins, she will be the first Latina singer to do so. We wish her all the best of luck!
The multi-talented Anna Bohichik is due back in shortly to record more children's songs to expand on last year's EP length outing, "Anna Banana and the Punky Monkeys."
Singer/pianist John Korba was in recently to master his latest CD "In The Muse," an eclectic and adventurous set of jazz and pop covers. Among the many fine players on the CD are drummer Warren Odze, guitarist George Naha and chromatic harp player Rob Papparozzi.
We hope to be seeing you in the coming year. It promises to be a great one!
All the best,
