Other exciting news in my world of music! Two beautiful c.d.s are in the works. One is my project "Sleep Walking Girl" which is a c.d. of my original compositions...My son Rene being my most outspoken fan put me up to the challenge of releasing a c.d. that was only tunes that I had penned...it's not really jazz...not pop...not really anything I can describe, but the playing on it so far is fantastic and I love everyone who has worked on it so much! And, closer to being finished is the GATO 6 c.d, which is sounding amazing. This is George's baby and I'm proud to be singing on it! Both projects will be out in the world in the spring of 2012!
