'Long Night's Moon'

The takes from this album were recorded in the
hours surrounding the rising of the Long Night's Moon.
the full moon at 4:43pm on 11 December 2000.

The music is immediate and sometimes improvisational with only a few minor edits and no splices or punch ins. In this recording, I have sought not perfection, but rather the preservation of a moment in time.

Brian Rolland, Marblehead MA, December 2000

All songs composed and performed by Brian Rolland. Except Scenes from the Third Mountain and Portrait in D,© Bart Jordan.

Played on a 1978 Contreras Model Classical Guitar strung with Savarez ultra high tension strings.
