COMPOSURE is an all instrumental CD with ten pieces I’ve composed and arranged through the years. This CD also debuts a new recording branch of Front Room Music, called Kokobilly Music...inspired by the jammin’ desert twins now immortalized in silhouette and song. Since we expect a lot of our sales on these particular titles to be downloads through our digital affiliates like iTunes and CD Baby, we’re only offering a limited number of CDs (in DigiPaks) for sale, so if you want a personal copy for your library, better not put it off…don’t say we didn’t warn you.
COMPOSURE happens to be my 22nd album. Michelle of BAH! Design, designed the artwork around my concept of Kokopelli and Kokobilly. Thanks M! I want to thank all the musicians who helped make the tunes sound so good. Thanks Leslie for your photo taken at Denver’s legendary Brown Palace…from my “yellow-jacket tour.” Thanks George Coyne for your considerable studio skills in making this collection a reality. Special thanks to you, Kyle Pratt for demonstrating your guitar virtuosity on Stonefeather. Friends, you’ll be able to hear Kyle again—and many other talented folks—on my long-procrastinated Christmas album due in the fall. More on that one later. I sincerely hope you enjoy COMPOSURE!
