Greetings and welcome to my
Happy New Year!
We live in exciting times, don`t we?
As I look back on last year, I see that I accomplished a lot.
I recorded two new CDs, went Chartbound on USA radio as an
Independent, set my sights on finishing Academic studies to
teach college Stateside in the future, and maintained an active,
successful playing and teaching career here in Japan.
My 9th CD is finished and in-hand now. Called "Everybody`s
Got a Name", I believe it`s one of my (if not the) strongest
so far. It features innovative writing along with some great
covers, exciting ensemble playing, and much more guitar than
previous releases. It`s formal introduction in the States
will be June `08, so we may prepare an advertising campaign,
and also in order to finish the promotion of "Paint
a Picture, Tell a Story", my 8th CD, which has been
and is still getting great reviews!
Please write to me if you want an advance copy of the new
