"RENO GIRL MAKES GOOD!" I keep hearing from people across the country who happened to watch "SO YOU THINK YOU CAN DANCE!" on July 19 and hear that my 2000 recording of "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" (from my CD "By Request") had been selected for the opening group dance song featured on that night. It aired nationally (at 9:00 pm PST) on Fox TV stations and I hope you caught it - it was the first song! THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for sending me your congratulations and best wishes! This program has now been licensed to several countries, so the blessings continue with royalty checks coming soon! Here is the link to the website for "So You Think You Can Dance"... http://www.fox.com/dance/ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ So how did they happen to choose me?... One of the choreographers, Jean Marc, was hoping to use Bette Midler's version of "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy" that week for a big swing dance production, but because she was on vacation and unable to respond to the quick request, Jean Marc searched iTunes for another version and discovered mine. I'm so thrilled that he chose it over so many others to be used for their hot new TV show. It was edited in length for the broadcast, but you can listen to it in its entirety right now on my website... http://camithompson.com/music.html, or on Itunes or dozens of other Internet music sites. My recording of "Boogie Woogie" features wonderful musicians I have been playing with for many years, some for decades: Tony Savage on drums, Richard Ray on bass, Peter Supersano on piano, Frank Falcioni on guitar. My friend Remmel Wilson let me use his horn arrangement, which showcases the trumpet stylings of Matt Nygren, with Paul Lenz (trumpet), Rich Lewis (trombone) and Remmel Wilson and Brian Landruss on saxes. Thanks for the great notes, guys!!! That's my voice overdubbed with up to 4 tracks of harmony which I arranged. We recorded it in my hometown Reno at IMIRAGE SOUND LAB, the awesome studio of recording genius "Too Tall" Tom Gordon! http://www.myspace.com/imiragesoundlab Remmel Wilson's CD can be found here: http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/baronvonremmel ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ I feel truly grateful to be a music-maker, and I thank the Universe for my abundant Blessings!!!! Thanks to you all for listening!
