This is some of the noise I've made.
These are musical projects on which I've played, engineered, produced or all of the above.
These are from an organ trio album, to be released minutes from now, with the redoubtable Matt Perko on drums and the indefatigable Tony Pulizzi on guitar. It is the wise man indeed who surrounds himself with young and talented performers.
This is from Helen's 2011 album "Forever for Now" (available at helenwelch.com). I'm playing piano, and it's my arrangement - which, with these guys (Bob Fraser on guitar, Bryan Thomas on bass, Chris Baker on drums and Howie Smith on soprano sax) consists of me saying "Make it work."
Another cut from Helen's album. It's my chart, and I'm playing organ and fake trombone (in the horn section w/Jack Schantz and Howie Smith). If you want to hear the jaw-dropping Bob Fraser guitar solo, well, you're just going to have to buy the album, now, aren't you?
This is a MIDI project - errathing came out of the computer. Carlton did all the vocals - he's one of the most instinctively musical people I've ever met.
This is one of my favorite tunes. If you feel half of what I felt when I played it, then I felt twice as much as you did listening.
Vince & I do a duo gig at Bongiorno's in Twinsburg during the summer. He's the real deal, and has been for lo these sixty years. He wrote this tune, and we got together one day and recorded this in one take. You wish you had a voice like that, don'tcha? I think you do.
These are from a series of ID spots for a local smooth jazz radio station, featuring the otherworldly voice of Priscilla Quinby. And yes, they wanted the kick drum that loud.
Priscilla Quinby again. That voice knocks me out. Voiceover by Gary Noland.
