Greetings all. I'm happy to announce the release of my new joint recording with Cowboy Junkies member Jeff Bird entitled ZenZen. This was truly an auspicious re-union after 35 years of two friends who started their music lives together. Jeff Bird, original and long time member of the Cowboy Junkies, brings his depth of experience and musicianship to the table in these pieces. Two pieces are based on shakuhachi honkyoku: Choshi shakuhachi/wood bass and Yamaga (based on shika no tohne) shakuhachi/mandolin The other pieces are based on concepts: Korean pansori, American folk, and Okinawan shimauta The final piece is a shakuhachi solo based on a composition by pianist Bruce Stoller entitled Distant Spaces. For those interested in purchasing a copy, mail me directly.
