Recently I was featured on the new GATO 6 c.d. which came out last month on Bus Biscuit Records called "El Viento" and can be purchased on iTunes or at Amazon.com or c.d.baby.com. In the mixing stage right now is my soon to be released c.d. "Romancing the Dark"which is a collection of songs that I've written and arranged for various interesting different combinations of instruments! Definitely not the approach I've taken on my last 5 recording projects and I'm totally excited about getting it finished so you can hear it!
Here's an early Happy holidays to everyone!!  Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Chanukah, Kwanza...all those wonderful holidays of light!!Looking forward to 2013 and it's many musical offerings!
