I Hide My Face Like This
I Hide My Face Like This... is a culmination of two years of production work involving 21 musicians. The album celebrates 19 years of songwriting collaboration between Gary Blu and Kenny Schiff. This debut project gives Gary Blu the opportunity to show off many of the skills he's been honing over the last 10 years as band leader, woodwind specialist, composer and arranger. In addition to work with his own regular performing ensemble, Blu has developed a close working relationship with Steely Dan's Donald Fagen and Walter Becker. For the past nine years he has worked along side them as arranger and copyist - his work featured on recent Steely Dan tours and CDs. In addition to the writing, arranging and production credits, 'I Hide My Face like This...' features Blu's soprano, alto, tenor and baritone saxophones, seamlessly integrated with the formidable brass section of Tony Kadleck.
