Kevin Gray, Forever Always - Broadway's Tribute CD

    The untimely and unfortunate passing of a Broadway star spurred on the creation of this tribute CD. Fueled by the passion of her love for her husband, the extremely talented actress and songwriter, Dodie Pettit, assembled an incredible tribute to her husband, Kevin Gray. Broadway stars came out in droves to contribute their talents to a 2 CD, 35 song masterpiece. Having met Kevin, and having worked with Dodie on several other project, I am incredibly proud to be a part of this wonderful tribute to her husband. Proceeds from the sales of this CD will go to the Kevin Gray Memorial Foundation. Which include “The Kevin Gray Musical Theater Award Endowment Fund” at Duke University and “The Kevin Gray Memorial Scholarship Award” at the Hartt School, University of Hartford.

The King by Jose Feliciano
Released 2012

    As Jose has always been a big fan of Elvis, it was truly a labor of love, for Elvis Presley has been an important thread throughout the life of Jose Feliciano. At Jose's home studio I recorded Jose as he commandeered this memoir in tribute to the King, Elvis Presley. All of the arrangements, instrumentation, background vocals and sequencing were first swimming around in his mind before laying it all out in the studio. “I loved coming to work each day with the challenge of laying down what I heard in my head. Al played bass on one number, programmed the drums and mixed all the tracks with me. It’s been an experience that might be hard to top.” In light of the dynamics at play with this project, he might be right.

Traveler
Released 2005

     The Burr Johnson Band The 4th CD with Kim Plainfield on drums and, of course, Burr Johnson on guitar and guitar synth. The CD was recorded and mixed entirely in Digital Performer. Burr and I dragged a G5, a console and some outboard over to Kim's basement and recorded him there. Then when we took the tracks home and polished up our tracks separately. Burr had moved to Native Instrument's Guitar Rig software and gets an incredible tone with it. I recorded my bass parts using a combination of the DI from my SWR Studio 220 head and my SWR 4x10 cabinet miked with a Neuman U-87. After we mixed and edited everything we took it over to Jim Clause and he did a great job of mastering the project.

Gonna Getcha
Released 1996

    A seven piece blues band that I played with back in the mid 90's. Great bunch of guys and all excellent musicians. Mike Mindel: Keys, (Bill's Toupee) Jonathan Moorehead: Vocals, (Mojosmoke) Andy Powell: Guitar, (Wishbone Ash) Donny Stroffolino: Drums, Ken Gioffre: Sax, Michael E. Smith: Trumpet, Flugelhorn. I still remember my audition for this band, the guys and I just hit it off right from the start. We just seemed to click and as it turned out, they ended up choosing me as thier next bassist. Next thing I know, we were recording and touring and having a great time, but the band only stuck together for a short time. It's been many years since then and I miss those guys.

     With members from the first band I was ever in during high school, "Tyrant", morphed into "Looker". Before this album was released in 1988, I had left the band, but I am on a couple of tunes on this album. Band members were myself on bass, Craig Heitzner - drums, Jon Haber - guitar, Dave Schwartz - guitar, and Lenny Ferber - vocals. After I left, Mike Murphy took over on bass. Jon Haber has been busy remastering some of the tunes and I'll have samples coming soon.
