This is another track co-written with Jan Pulsford. You can find her on the web under ONE of her nom-du-plumes, Athena Blue. She sent me the demo with the title Once in a Blue Moon, and I thought we’d immortalize Mz. Blue in this title, and add a little light as well.

The late great T.Bone Wolk and Steely Dan's Keith Carlock recorded the bass and drums LIVE in Dexter Brown's barn in Vermont. To be in the room with the both of them, feeling and hearing their groove, was one of the best experiences of my life.

The vocals you hear from Melissa Kaplan were originally done with her just jamming to the track, completely ad lib. It was (and is) SO good, that we refined it over the months to what you hear today.

I think we captured the intensity of her performance, and then some!
