Bill waxing billoquent on a prior upcoming show alongside MICHAEL HECHT:
“…..I will be sharing an evening of excerpts form the writing of poets, playwrights, authors and historical figures with Michael Hecht.
This will be at least the 7th time we have worked together with me supplying songs spaced between the writing he has organized and reads from. I have never had a better collaboration in which to place songs, which in this case are all my own writings. It is not to presume that I am equating my own lyrics with any of these writers, but allows me to visit the type of writing that has inspired and informed me through out my 74 years ( minus the first 7 or so). Most of Mr. Hecht’s choices were specifically unknown to me so I am in the audience too. As I listen I find a comfortability in performing that I have seldom had. It feels so right.”
