Released 2017
Get off My Lawn Records
A Jazz duo that sounds like a trio record thanks to an innovative guitar design.
NOTES
I was nineteen when I met Joe Beck. He was playing a concert at a small music school in Briarcliff Manor, New York, where I was preparing for my time at Berklee College of Music. My exposure to jazz was limited to the mainstream household names, including Miles Davis, and here’s Joe Beck, who was the guitarist on Circle In The Round, the first guitarist Miles Davis had ever recorded with. We’re in …

Released 2017

The band from Guy On A Buffalo made a live album and it's excellent.
NOTES
I met Jomo And The Possum Posse when they hired me to help them set up a PA for a private party.

At the time, I had never heard of “Guy On A Buffalo.”
I had …

Between the Worlds

Released 2017

Released 2017
Get off My Lawn Records
An eclectic blend of styles in a nostalgic vein of the great singer songwriters of the 70s, 80s and 90s.
NOTES
To complete an album is an insurmountable task for many artists. It is truly a massive undertaking.

In this case, it's the collective experience of a handful of people pouring their hearts and souls into capturing lightning in a bottle for your listening enjoyment.
I've produced many albums over the years, and …

Identity Crisis

by Sounds in Between

Released 2017
Get off My Lawn Records
Released 2017
Get off My Lawn Records
Identity Crisis is the debut album of Sounds In Between, which is an ensemble fusing Turkish Folk Music and Jazz.
NOTES
Having made records for over 15 years at this point, i'm not sure I've come across such a strong opening as Toprak, which sets the mood for the entire project, a bland of Jazz, Turkish Folk, and Blues in a way I've never heard before. No album would be complete without a contemplative ballad and February is special. Josh Peters' singing was unexpected, but fits in only the way Josh could make it. Once the groove …
