Working on the most difficult and delicate orchestration of my life! The song is “Just Fine Feelin’ Blue,” a melancholy ode to Billie Holiday and the heartbreak and resignation of lost love. A 12 piece orchestra including strings, french horn, and winds make up airy mystery of the piece while the piano, bass, and drums carry it on, head held lonely but high.

Unedited Intro to “Just Fine Feeling Blue,” off of @lovesickwriter ‘s debut album Caged Bird Sings Songs About Red Beard. By far my proudest and most difficult orchestration of my life! This was my homage to old school @capitolrecords recordings like Nat King Cole’s 1948 recording of “Nature Boy.” More snips of this tune coming, as well as a full video. Incredible musicians on this record and on this track! #orchestration #musicproducer #cbssarb #recordingstudios #strings
