                                            IMPRESSIONS CD SAMPLER

This album took longer to complete than any of my previous sixteen. It began in 2007 at my Los Angeles studio when I was asked to cover a few Allan Holdsworth tunes and thought, wouldn't it be cool to record a tribute to my favorite jazz guitarists? So, with the unparalleled help from Baba Elefante (bass) and Ronnie Ciago (drums), I accomplished this goal! Impressions is an album that emulates the stylistic guitar playing of Joe Pass, Wes Montgomery, Django Reindhardt, Johnny Smith, Kenny Burrell, Pat Martino and Allan Holdsworth. It is an interpretation/impression of the aforementioned masters, intending to show that imitation is indeed the sincerest form of flattery.

My sincere thanks to Baba and Ronnie for their patience and commitment to this project. Also, thanks to Richie Russo who lent his talent on a track. And special thanks to Keb’ Mo’ and Randy Stonehill for their BGV’s.

Recording Impressions was a great labor of love. Now I'm looking for a little help from my friends to complete the mastering and manufacturing of the album.

           THANKS VERY MUCH FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION!!

Risks and challenges

There really are no risks or challenges. The recording is complete and the musicians have been paid. This Kickstarter is kinda like taking advanced orders. The funds will be used to pay for the mastering and manufacturing of the CD.
