I’m real excited about this, my professionally produced debut album, ‘Both Sides Now’.
It’s been a lifetime in the making!
With the Best of Boston players we’ve woven together a work of breadth, depth and beauty. Hard to categorize these songs other than to say they’re catchy, gritty, fun, funny, powerful, uplifting, intriguing and full of inspiration.
Producer Crit Harmon (of Martin Sexton, Susan Werner, Lori McKenna fame) masterfully maneuvered ever more stunning vocals and instrumentals. Music Director Brad Hatfield lead the band and played piano, Hammond B3 organ and synths with dextrous finesse and vitality; Stan Strickland laid down elegant and exuberant woodwind parts; while Marty Ballou and Jim Gwin, bass and drums respectively, set solid and fanciful footings for us to work from. Fabio Pirozzolo topped it off, adding his innovative and exquisite percussive ingenuity. And to give it all an extra boost, Vance Gilbert and Barbara Kessler contributed their sterling vocal artistries as did the amazing Duke Levine on guitar.
Talk about an All Star Cast!
And I want to share this All Star experience,
this utter joy a lifetime in the making,
