Our Own Way 2
Volume II 'Our Own Way' continues our trilogy 'Our Own Way' with Sheila covering all the percussion duties while singing. In our fourth offering 'Chestnuts', a collection of standards, we have added a drummer. This will be released on CD Baby later this year. In Volume II we introduce some new musicians in addition to those found on 'Our Own Way (Vol. I): CARL LOCKETT, guitar, of Jimmy Smith trio fame and currently performing with Joey Di Francesco; RICK SMITH, guitar, leader of the 'Harry's Jazz Club' band in Singapore; MICHAEL BLUESTEIN, piano, currently living in Los Angeles and recently touring with Boz Scaggs in his jazz persona; MIKE BUSBEE, trombone, currently a staff songwriter in Los Angeles. Vol. II continues in the same format as Vol. I. Of the fifteen tracks, seven are originals. The styles are as before, originals in the Brazilian and Afro-Cuban styles, and original arrangements of standards. Vol. III will be released on CB Baby this summer.
