Layers of classical guitars blend with island echoes. Smooth jazz gives way to dirty blues. The sounds of nature merge seamlessly with flamenco styles.

Abaco Song Descriptions:
Winning and Losing - Ambient jazz. Soothing synth sounds with smooth guitar tracks. Synthesizer, electric guitar, bass guitar, udu pot.
Frog Rhythms - Nature/world beat fusion. The frogs in our backyard in summer inspired this sample based song.
Playa Noche - Flamenco fusion. Three classical guitar tracks, bass guitar, udu pot, handmade claves, cabasa.
Blue Fish - A happy Carribean island, steel drum and guitar song. Where's my margarita? Synthesizer, electric and acoustic guitars, bass guitar.
Morning - The requisite lush ballad. Synthesizers, and plenty of them-grand piano, acoustic bass, strings, voices, cello.
Bluesong - Grunge blues. Three electric guitar tracks, bass guitar, electronic drums.
Cloak of Daylight - More flamenco fusion, in a positive mood. Eight tracks of classical guitar, bass guitar, udu pot, djembe, congas, claves, cabasa.
Escape - That's our cat, purring up a storm in the background. I believe tuna steak, cooked rare, was on the menu that night. She knew that when the chanting started, it was time to escape to the woods for a little cat fun. This CD is dedicated to our little Gimper.
Bonus track - Frogcapella - Two mics in the backyard on a late June night in 2002. Only nature writes songs this good.
