Today, I’m sharing 3 different versions of the same poem. Two of these poems were recorded in studios; one with my beloved Upthegrove Reynolds Project that I performed with in the Ann Arbor/Detroit areas (more on that in another post), the second of which was a CD I recorded with the help of music producer Michial White Jr. (no relation). What great experiences they both were.
The third is just me, recited the piece without music accompaniment…just me and the instrument I was born with.
I hope you enjoy all three versions. My words run deep and so do my feelings, so be kind, if you don’t mind.
Here is Defiling Heaven…
above, the never before heard version with the Upthegrove Reynolds Project, recorded in 2003 in Ann Arbor, MI at the Solid Sound Studio
this is the version produced by Mechiel White Jr. (aka the Groovematist) in Dexter, MI (turn up your sound a little)
