Terrytoonz: Coast to Coast
"TerryToonz: Coast to Coast" was a labor of love. The first of a line of TerryToonz projects to come. The work was influenced by a 45 year background in R&B, Jazz and Gospel, and by life experiences from.....Coast to Coast! My intent was to produce an eclectic mix that samples a variety of genres, from House to Hip-hop to country, to jazz ballad. I hope I've accomplished that and that at least one of the toonz sticks in your mind like an upside down jelly sandwich.... The MIDI programming, guitar, and bass work are mine, as are the compositions. I was fortunate to hook up and collaborate with Jeff Forrest, DoubleTime Productions, in El Cajon CA, who contributed drums and percussion, sweetened my rough tracks, and produced the project. Thanks to Jeff and Mitch Manker who is responsible for the killer horn tracks on "GeeBees" and "Fall is All" on the CD. And most importantly, thanks to you for listening, especially those of you who like this enough to own it. I was very fortunate to have Art Eiland, 'The Jazz Patio' - WLLR-FM,KMXG-FM, and WFXN-AM radio give me a review on 'C2C'. He had these kind words to say about the effort,'... This is good stuff... I love the hollow body guitar on most tracks...production quality was very warm sounding...music was consistent...Again, this is good stuff.' Thanks Art, and stay tuned for "TerryToonz: Grafitti" - coming soon to the CD Baby outlet nearest you!
