I'm very fortunate to have these gentlemen with me on this project. When thinking of musicians to play my music I needed people who were versital with a number of music styles and could play outside of a box. Basically, I needed people who are could play jazz because some of my music is jazzy sounding. I wouldn't call myself a straight up jazz musician but I know I'm not a rock player. I just play the music that's in my head and sometimes it comes out with a bossa nova feel, but other stuff is mixed in there with it so it's never all of one thing. With the current album we're working on, I chose to document my more jazzy sounding material and used a nylon string guitar simply because it's my favorite and sounds best with the material. We'll schedule our final session to record my song 'Fathead' and a do over of 'You Believed It So' on 4.23.20. We'll be at this studio on Wed. 1/22/20 to recording my songs - 'Southold Morning' (instrumental) and 'You Don't Treat Me Right' (more of a funky number that will jump off to the next album which will be more electric sounding.)
A demo from my upcoming album featuring wonderful musicians joining me on my project. Richard Gates - bass, Mike 'Sax' McLaughlin - tenor and Fabio Pirozzolo - drums.
