Land of Beginning Again
My new CD with guitar player Charlie 'yes that's his real name' Brown, called Land of Beginning Again, brings together jazz, folk and country influences - and even a little classical. The CD is a collaboration with Charlie, with four of my original songs, including the title song, and two of his, primarily instrumentals. He plays lead guitars, plus electric bass, Dobro and lap steel. Charlie and I met in New York a few decades ago, and he went on to a stellar career as a studio musician, as well as releasing two solo LP's on Polydor, and a CD, Ride in the Country. My first CD, Better Late Than... is folk oriented, while Land of Beginning Again has a more eclectic range of styles, and, I hope, expresses some of my feelings about regret, time passing and second chances.
