In 1997, an album of mine was completed. This was an endeavor that did not
take much time at all from its inception if you compare it to certain other things, like

Several of my friends found this concept repellent and told me right away a year or so

A few independent jazz/NAC stations latched on to this new version, The Body
Remembers, and it got some interesting feedback,
