ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Profits from Abaco are donated to no-kill animal shelters.

Please make a donation today to your local no-kill animal shelter. Better yet, adopt a homeless animal.

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

Thomas Moens has been writing and performing for more than two decades. The songs on Abaco are all written, performed, and recorded, and produced by Thomas Moens.

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.

Joseph VLcek

Very clever blend of sound to ease the troubled mind.
Thomas Moens snags the sounds of a peaceful island setting
and slids them past your senses. Perfect for a cocktail
party, Sunday drive, or on the headset for a peaceful day of skiing the backcountry.
Escape life's strife and turmoil by taking a visit to the lively colorful yet tranquil world of Thomas Moens.
