Rescuing the Nonet

My bandcamp page is growing.  On my bandcamp you will find ancient history–archives of recordings from the early 1991-2004, and then the brand new releases (2021-present).  To find the releases on from my years on the Soona Songs record label (2006-2017), you can write to me here, or go to  

In 2013 I multi-tracked a live performance in Dallas TX, with a full band, horns and all. It was an impossible feat, but we gave it our all. The band was a killer collective of world class musicians. I dusted off my composition chops, and wrote arrangements for the set of songs (some originals, many covers), and assembled the dream band. But the vocals were not what they needed to be, and the project was shelved.
Fast forward 11 years, the technology has changed, and we have begun to mix, and re-record, re-mix the vocals. It was an amazing moment in time. The band was killer!
I hope to finish the mixing by the end of May, then to raise the dollars for licensing and duplication, artwork et al.
I’ve released two cuts from the recording as singles on my bandcamp page: “Easy Chair Escape”, and “Stars Rained Down”.  I cannot put the rest of the jazz standards and other covers on bandcamp until I raise The moolah for proper licensing. 

Please take a listen, share with your friends, and download them. They are available at “name your price” (including $0).
All proceeds go towards finishing this project.
This album is one of two that I am working to release this year.
Thank you for supporting music and musicians. We cannot do this without the dough. We cannot do this without your ears <3
