There are few composers who bridge musical genres as well as Jason Heald. He writes just as well for musical theatre as he does for chamber music. He writes choral music. He writes cabaret. In addition, he runs a music department, takes students on tours, performs, conducts...I don’t know when or if he sleeps.
Jason also allowed me to record one of my CD’s, A Spin On It, at Umpque Community College where he teaches. In addition to pieces by Joel Pierson, Dana Libonati, and Dave Deason, I recorded Jason’s Suite for Guitar and Piano. At the end of a very long afternoon, I knocked out this cabaret song because, after all, what better way to channel my inner Diana Krall?
