Key West THE NEWSPAPER
My friend Marcus Dagan was in town to show
of his finished CD and celebrate, but the
party wasn't to be. A passenger on the ship got too sick for
the infirmary to handle and had to be taken away by
helicopter. This delayed the Key West stop, limiting it to
just over an hour, so the crew stayed on board. Only Marcus,
Francois, and I got to celebrate. We'll do it in a few
months when Marcus' Bermuda gig has finished.
Marcus Dagan's CD was produced and recorded by Francois
Gehin at his Mad Dog Studio. The sound is clean and perfect.
You Dagan fans out there already know Marcus uses unusual
timing, but that doesn't matter a bit. The important
ingredient of Marcus Dagan on stage or on record is his
mesmerizing voice. This man's vocals are way beyond sexy.
My favorites from" Alone" are" Where Or When", which has an
easy swing beat with very nice sax, bass, and drums, "Music
Of the Night" with a recitative approach and a moving
interpretation, "When I Fall In Love", and "The First Time
Ever I saw Your Face".
I was knocked out by "I'll Forget You", a real tearjerker;
laden with emotion. I thank Marcus for recording my song,
"Star". Alison Rose Munn from the ship sang an obbligato.
She's a doll. I met her. Marek Marzalek's sax playing was
wonderful. Francois' bass is always a winner. If you want a
