(Songs From The Great American Song Book Vol 2) To transform the music of yesterday into that of today
NEW YORK, August 22, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — On September 11, 2022, an album nearly 4 years in the making, James A. Norkawich’s album Sophomore (part 2 of 2 in a series) of the great American songbook is set to be released. The album “Today”, which follows his debut album “Yesterday – Songs from the Great American Songbook, presents music from the 1940s to today. His new album presents songs of various styles, including original material never heard before. A special composition, “The Things You Are – Peter’s Song”, pays homage to his cousin who remains a major inspiration in James’ career. The album “Today” takes the listener through a more colorful look and introspective on the many styles that have influenced James.” It’s quite colorful in terms of the direction the album is taking. It takes the listener from a musical story to a canvas that the ear can translate” “Yesterday” is a musical collaboration that made this country great. “Today” responds to this call and shows the music from the 50s to today, where its roots lie and I guess where we are going.”
James’ hope for this album, for the younger generation, is to open their minds and explore how music across genres was created, how it impacts us today and why it is considered so immortal. and essential to his palette. “Music has become stale,” James said in a recent interview, “and we need to re-examine what makes us happy, sad, what got us through the good times and the bad times. Music now tends towards sounds more classic and revised. Since the pandemic. People are looking at music on all kinds of media platforms, and now they’re listening to music they’ve never heard before. From a big bang of the blues on the guitar or the lyrics to a song they loved but never really knew what the was about to put a new spin on an old classic, James said what’s old is new again and that’s what the “Today” album is about.
Yesterday can be found on all streaming media, and Today will also be available on September 11, 2022
The video debut of The Things You Are will also be available on YouTube on September 11, 2022 at 2:00 PM EST.
This 9/11 remembers those who lost their lives for our country and the sacrifices made by those who also served.
