|Subject:||recording with an operatic performer|
|From:||christopher gast (Paris, KY/USA)|
Hey Pat, I’d like to ask if you would ever consider doing a work with an operatic performer. If you read any on the American Garage portion of this site someone asked what rock band they could see you playing with. I threw out the idea of doing something with someone like Andrea Bocelli. Ever thought of this and do you think this could/would work? Of course it would have to be with the right opera singer and with the right musical score. Just think’n. Hope to see a response to this and thanks for your music.
Hi Christopher. Renee Fleming came to one of my concerts one time and has worked with several of my associates along the way, so she comes to mind. But she is a special case because she comes to jazz or even pop as someone who really follows it and seems able to adapt to just about anything which is a rare quality that sets her apart in her field. In general, I would say that it would be a challenge for me and at the same time I can sort of imagine it. Some of my favorite music ever is in that general area.
