Somewhere In Time: Eine Kleine Trunk Musik
Lyric by Barbara Rothstein/Music by Michele Brourman
Performed by Kimaya Seward
Produced by Michele Brourman & Stephan Oberhoff
Barbara Rothstein and I wrote this in (gulp) 1995. Her lyric, written about her late husband Roger, touched me so deeply that the music kinda poured through me. I remember the two of us sitting at my keyboard, weeping.
Barbara said, “We have to record the demo at Stephan’s – hedoes great string arrangements.” I had no idea who she was talking about, but I assured her that I could write some very good string arrangements. Then she handed me a cassette. “Play this.” I put it in my boom box, (like I said, it was 1995) and heard this lush, gorgeous sound. I pressed STOP – and said, “Book it!”
This recording with singer Kimaya Seward, another revelation, was the start of my creative partnership and friendship with Stephan Oberhoff.
I thank Barbara constantly for that! And for this song, which still brings me to tears.
