Blizzard Song (Slip Away) (4:23)

About this track

Grayson wrote this song about the days he worked as a modern dance accompanist at Princeton University, during the Winter of 1986. He would take the train from Grand Central Station, then the small locomotive “Dinky” train up the short ride to the campus. There were several big snows that Winter, and Grayson remembers being pleasantly cut off from the rest of the world, surrounded by those ivy-covered walls and snow-drifting campus yards. He’d get his coffee at the cafeteria, bring it down to the dance studio, take off his slushy boots and sit down at the piano for three or four long dance classes, playing away, sometimes singing, providing beats and notes for the dancers, entering a kind of dream state where there was nothing but the sound of feet, breathing, reverberating piano notes and the big hush of quiet snow covering up the trees and rooftops and circling sidewalks and ancient stone walls.
Sometimes even a song was born.
