Here's what I wrote about my previous CD The Other Side. The words seem pertinent again (although the production values, vocals, and breadth of styles represented on Undertow deserve special mention): I could say this and that in praise of my new record. Melodies, hooks, punchy, tender, angry, funny, the usual powerful lyrics etc. But it's hard to hype your own work without feeling a little nauseated. All I really can do is invite you to listen. So here's your invitation. P.S. Empty (Track 15) was chosen Best Jazz Song at the 2007 New Mexico Music Awards. Undertow was a finalist in seven categories, including Best Rock CD and Best of the Year.
