Old California - In Search of a Lost World

The Forgetting - Steven Grigsby


This collection of songs was written over several decades. Although it is hard to put everything in one pot, these songs seem to belong together as a suite.

I was surprised to find that at the end of the day, Resonator Guitar was on nearly every piece. This is a wonderful instrument. It lends an orchestral backing to almost any song you do, and is very adept at expressive playing. Even if you aren't a virtuoso.

Most cuts feature either Arnie Helmnik or Lani Thomsen-Grigsby on Bass; Lani also plays keyboard and synthesizer on many of the others.
