Perhaps this is the result of yesterday’s seminar on Storytelling for Photographers, the fact that yesterday was the anniversary of R&P’s first musical performance (02/22/1982) or it could just be the way my brain deals with life, who knows? Be that as it may, this morning I arranged and re-arranged a series of songs from albums by Romanovsky & Phillips and Ron Romanovsky’s solo releases.
“Wimp” tells the story of one man’s journey from lonely, unathletic loner to out and proud young man in 18 songs. The total run-time, as recorded, is about 60 minutes. I’m not the best person to write a story to go along with it; anyone who has the talent and the interest (and, if possible, the connections) to do ‘a book’ should contact Ron Romanovsky to discuss permissions and contracts.
However, I offer it here as a potential concert play list for a choral group or glee club that might wish to use it. Again, permissions go through Ron. About a dozen of the song titles link to short clips (~40 seconds each) at RomanovskyAndPhillips.com.
