After a very solid year of recording, editing, mixing mastering and then a painful process with my graphic designer, i am very happy to release my first solo album in more than ten years. The pressures and demands of life made this project take longer than anticipated, but i am very happy with the product. It will be available on Itunes, Amazon etc this coming week…and if you are in Clearwater this Sunday, i will have the release party…check FB for details.
My Production of “Siempre Pude Ver” with the the great Jose Gentile for singer songwriter “Ana Victoria” is about to hit 3 Million views! What a great achievement for us all!
Keep adding the love!
I have just finished 3 shows with Billy in the Caribbean, the last being today 1/1/13.
To be honest i am still completely blown out by the experience as well as being physically exhausted – you can’t help but give every possible ounce of energy into your performance when you have someone like this next to you. He is ridiculously inspiring yet so humble, real and just cool! God he even let me take a Bass solo as we carved out a version of Stanley Clarkes “School Days”. To be honest, i sucked, but it was still a thrill. Fortunately my vocals didn’t suck and after the show Billy offered to play on my record which i will do in Jan Feb this year!
In short, being around such a Master is unquestionably the musical highlight of my life so far. It has lifted my level of dedication and love of music to a much, much higher level.
Here are some pics from the shows:
Billy had the idea to do Stanley Clarks “School Days” with 4 Bass players!
With the passing of undoubtedly the greatest and most courageous Sitar player the world has known, all eyes turn to Anoushka Shankar!
Naturally the power that flows in her playing is a direct influence from her great father and teacher, but in children like these, i question that the spirit that is the child, is already a Master in their own right…reincarnated to continue the journey of sharing their magic upon the world…why not?
Regardless of the past of the new “Master Shankar”, what an inspiration it is see this love and passion for music blossom into a child so spectacular! A dream for every parent and teacher and how blessed we are to see and hear her play!!
