Michael Carlotta (NYC music producer, leader of NYC's Soul Sound Revue) says: "In New York City there are THOUSANDS of great musicians, but when it comes to hiring the single best keyboard player with the strongest R&B feel it’s Mark Berman-bar none!... if you want the best keyboard player on both coasts, for a deep groovin’ soul, R&B, contemporary Gospel, or hard driving Nashville Rock&Pop feel, call Mark Berman"
Mark comments: "I feel this is timely. The world is being abused and its health ignored. We are all part of this great small blue planet, and its health and people need our attention. We need a call back to Earth. A call to harmony. Peace must be achieved and our earth must be cherished, as well as all living creatures on it. This is our planet's natural state. Our call must be heard. My contribution is 'The Genesis Project'.
Thank you for listening to this."
