Thomas Chapin's NEVER LET ME GO to Benefit Film Project
A generous offer from Thomas Chapin's widow, Terri, and his brother Ted, will allow proceeds from their personal sales of the new CD - NEVER LET ME GO - to benefit the Thomas Chapin Film Project. The recently launched documentary film project, NIGHT BIRD SONG: THE THOMAS CHAPIN STORY is in need of "Early Bird" funders, says EMMY-winning filmmaker Stephanie Castillo, who will help keep the project going and the momentum building at this time. A kickstarter campaign to raise the monies needed to start filmming will go for 2-months starting Feb. 13, the 15th anniversary of Chapin's passing.
The 3-CD set, to be released Dec. 11 by Playscape Recordings, celebrates Chapin, who died in 1998 from leukemia at age 40,and features his last public performances from '95 and '96. Recorded live from Flushing Town Hall in Queens and the old Knitting Factory in downtown Manhattan, it features quartet music with Chapin on alto sax and flute, Peter Madsen on piano, Kiyoto Fujiwara on bass, Reggie Nicholson on drums, Scott Colley on bass, and Matt Wilson on drums.
Anyone wishing to help the Thomas Chapin film project by buying a CD set can do so by sending a $30 check to Terri Castillo Chapin, 33-51 84th St. 2-C, Jackson Ht., NY 11372. Shipping is included. All donations for the film are welcomed.
