Jess Klein and Mike June made a special trip back to Windeck on their whirlwind tour of European countries in September and October. Late on a Saturday night, we set up the studio and recorded a beautiful version of Jess's "My Own Beating Heart".  She's contributing downloads of the recording to the digital album "Swimming In Blackwater". 

I remember Jess was looking for a sound, she described what she wanted, and I thought of the basket of drying sage we had harvested from our garden. Sage has a special significance in the lives of many people. I'm glad it made it's way into the music.
