Tried to make a shorter record.
This is really like 3 collections.
Actually 26 tracks.
Recorded at Panetta Studios, Elmwood Pk.,NJ and Nick's basement.
Besides the obvious, instruments used include, but are not limited to; dilruba, balfon, kaen, oud, jing-hu, ektara, andes 25f, bass harmonica, charango......ahhhhh, you get the idea.
We'll make a shorter one next time.
released August 5, 2016
Deepest thanks to these performers who refused payment for their contributions;
The whole affair is MC'd by voice actor Daniel Patrick Sheridan, a young man with a disturbingly low voice, someplace between Satan and Jabba The Hut. That's his low B-flat on "Evil Is Alive."
Peter Lewy on cello on "Curve Of The Earth." www.peterlewy.com
The vocals on "Things I Do" are Sunny Ha, Nikki Illchert and Katie Ortiz.
The finger snapping on "Things I Do" is Bobby Badfingers,
