ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
I was raised on Music. My father played marimba and organ in a popular local 3-piece jazz combo- The Versatiles- for 30 years, and my mother has been singing with a church choir, since high school, to this day. My Dad started teaching me on our livingroom spinet when I was a toddler (I wanted to be just like my Daddy). I started formal lessons in the second grade- from my Mom's choir director, of course. Most of my Aunts and Uncles, and even my father's parents and THEIR siblings- sang as well, so at family get-togethers we were literally surrounded by harmony. On Fridays, after dinner, my Dad would come home from work and we kids would load his equipment into the Vista Cruiser while he cleaned up for his playing job, at a local club or party center. So joining a cover band that played on weekends seemed like the natural and necessary thing for me to do. After more than 20 years of that happy lifestyle, I decided it was time to perform and record some of the original songs I have been writing since junior high school- though that very early stuff was left in the music room at home...I wish my Dad was here for this at-long-last accomplishment, and I hope you enjoy listening!
Half the tracks on watertalk are pretty much solo performances, but the band tracks feature performances by some of my best friends- who happen to be some of the finest musicians anywhere. All the songwriting, piano, lead vocals and most harmonies are my work, and Byron Nemeth contributed all guitars as well as produced, engineered, mixed and mastered this cd. On little rivers and number nine, Wanda Sobieska added violin, Deanna Brzozowski sang backups, Tim Sprow added drums, Jeff Anastasia played bass, Carlos Jones added bongos, congas, guiro and vibraslap and J. Scott Franklin played trumpet. On barfly, she walks away and touch me, you'll hear performances by Karmi James on cello, Pete "Pedro" Dell on percussion, Cholly O on bass and Rob Hunter on trumpet.

Soothing waves of summer night music
You can't be in a rush listening to this album. Close the door. Pour a drink. Be alone and listen. Move inside these songs and they'll form pictures and stories in your mind. Ahh, this is a far cry from screaming guitars. A welcome change of pace to the tired ear. Warning: Frantic numb-nuts will have no use for this music! I caught Anita Keys (the Low-Note Girl) live in Cleveland, Ohio and really enjoy her unhurried style. Other easy favorites on the album include Barfly, Number Nine, Cottage Lullaby, 3 Am Song and the instant crowd pleaser Little Rivers. Cool instrumentation and a full band sprinkled here and there give some of these cuts a little extra bounce and rhythm. If you are in need of a vacation but can't afford to go anywhere, just buy a bottle of wine and listen to this album from start to finish. I guarantee, you'll be relaxed afterwards. If you can't afford the wine - just buy the music. Cheers!
