DISCOGRAPHY


Here’s a listing of my recorded work:


* THE NEW CD "LONG TIME COMING" (2014) IS HERE! - My newest recording project is now in!  It has been a VERY long time coming, with various challenges, but I'm very happy with the tunes.  You'll hear a few different musical styles on this one.  With deft sound-shaping by co-producer Bret Levick, the songs were brought to life pretty close to what I could hear in my head... and then some!  The album features performances by many fantastic musicians from here in Southern Oregon, with a mix of full-band tunes and mellow acoustic stuff.
