Jacaranda was written and recorded in the solitude of an old mansion, at the end of a gravel road, on the banks of the Mississinewa River in Indiana. Many years ago the same house was used in the underground railroad as a place of refuge for escaping slaves, and later, in the 1920’s, infamous bank robbers such as John Dillinger used the mansion as a safe-house in between their criminal exploits. In the tradition of using the home as a place of safe harbor for those on the move, the current owners Bill and Robin Lett invited me and my wife Michelle to live on the estate (which Bill affectionately calls “the pig farm”) while recording this album. We took them up on their offer, and moved into the secluded manor as the summer months were drawing to an end.
