Hello and welcome to my site and thanks for looking me up on the web.
2011 promises to be another busy year, lots of music, some travel, now after living in Nosara, Costa
Rica for the last 5 years am now living again in California, Ventura this time!!!
My latest cd out with Native Vibe is titled "Across the Globe". During our radio campaign with
Roger Lifesett and Peer Pressure Promotions we got on the Smooth Jazz R&R charts for 3 months. Even more important we
made it on the Grammy Ballot (pre-nominations)for "Best Contemporary Jazz Album". This was Native Vibe's
second CD on the Grammy Ballot, the first cd was "Luna De Nosara". "Across the Globe" is spiced
with jazz, african and latin flavors and has a great lineup. Russel Ferrante, Mic Gillette, Nee Sackey, Luis Conte,
Marcel Adjibi, Dave Curtis, Allan Phillips, Jason Hann, Rogerio Jardim, Jeff Kashiwa, Dayren Santamaria, Fabiana Passoni,
Marion Meadows, Ramon Yslas and Kamau Kenyatta to name a few. Check out the cool artwork too, a painting done by Richard
I have also been touring with jazz /flamenco violinist extraordinaire
Willie Royal, the Willie of "Willie and Lobo" so watch for dates around the US and Canada with him this and next
year. We just recorded a double "live to multi-track" cd and a dvd as well and those products will be available
before the end of the year. This project is called "Willie and the Locos"
Additionally I have started a brand new Native Vibe CD to be titled "Picante". Hernan Olalla
(Argentina)(bass) and Kin Rivera Jr (drums)(Costa Rica)are working on the rhythm section tracking as we speak and it promises
to be a saucy latin adventure in sound. this CD will be out sometime in 2011.
All the recordings I've done plus artists i have produced including Native Vibe cds, my blues cds, Keeva,
Jen Staves, Deblois can all be bought or downloaded from the link below, cdbaby.com
I am now living fulltime in Ventura, California but am available
for teaching, recording sessions, producing, songwriting collaborations, touring and gigs anywhere else in the world!!!!!.
