ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
11/4/2009 - Chasing September is my latest batch of personal home recordings. Despite a profound lack of any substantial material success for my efforts, I keep forging my own sonic signature.

To be painfully honest, I sometimes I feel somewhat indulgent and foolish still doing this – particularly as a parent with two kids to support and struggling so hard in a failing industry, yet I know not what else to do. It took me many years to realize and accept that I am an artist – perhaps a mediocre one, but a true one none the less.. To this day I sometimes desperately wish I could have been so intensely preoccupied with a more pragmatic pursuit.

Yet I’ve endured and also enjoyed many of the blessings that occur while attempting to be true to my self. The good news is that there is some peace to be found in the pursuit of personal authenticity and I feel pretty good about some of my aural explorations. In an era where too many are drowning in homogenized musical milk, I think discerning listeners will hear a worthwhile and individual spirit in my work.

In any case, this album is dedicated to my wife Manuela for having the courage and commitment to pursue her own life’s vision and also for tolerating my anxiety and fear as I stumble forward with my own.. I love you Manuela, please accept my apologies and gratitude for both the good and bad we’ve experienced on our journey together thus far.
--- ------- ----------
Track Descriptions:
Meditation in Motion - aka “Yoga Dea” for my wife Manuela. This is a great accompaniment to self reflection and contemplation.
Pretty Baby - I’m an old dog, but I still like to rock out a bit. This is a just a raucous saloon salute to my wife one day when she was looking good :)
Let It Flow – a mellow, hippie dippie, 60’s lounge groove featuring some sexy sax work by Matt Lott and some nice jazzy, dark, murky tones from my Les Paul and the electric vibraphone.
Little Red Fox – another sexy lounge blues dedicated to my gorgeous “little Red Fox”
Les Paul Blues – a good friend of mine, guitarist John Pfeiffer saw my Les Paul lying around in dust one day and chastised me to get the damn thing set up. He kindly brought it to legendary luthier Paul Unkert’s shop and got it fixed for me. I’ve primarily been playing a strat for the past decade and the Les Paul felt like a foreign object to me once I got it back. Little by little I got back into it and coaxed some sweet tones out of it. One day I was down in the basement busting up some blues and recorded it. The next day Les Paul died so I figured that this might serve reasonably well as a modest tribute to him..
Mattison Nocturne – Here in Asbury Park there is a small cluster of businesses comprising an outpost of urban renewal that hasn’t quite gotten there yet. It creates a unique mixture of vibrant hope and change amidst certain danger and darkness on the edge of town..
Light of Day – On 10/29/09 there was a bad ass reggae band at the Saint. Despite my obvious and utter lack of ability to have or hint at any scrap of real reggae musical ability, this tune jumped out of my soul the next day.. Despite its ghoulish shortcomings there is something about this tune I enjoy.. Maybe Matt’s sax chords?
Get Gnarly! – improvised surf jam featuring Joe Savio (AGENCY) on drums and Jay Walker (TOP BASS 2008 Asbury Park Music Awards). Title credit to “Wills” Weller.
Need To Know (featuring Brianna Brice) – is a very old tune I wrote about 20 years ago while contemplating the bigger meaning of life, its pretty trippy to hear my teen age daughter singing it now..
June 25, 2009 – R.I.P. Michael Jackson, this is an old melody I used to play as a kid when I was first starting out and feeling sad, scared and lonely. For some reason, it seemed fitting to record it on this day over a quarter of a century later..
Damage Done –
When you hope and you pray
But you know there's nothing left to say
Its damage done, damage done,
like a setting sun, it's damage done..

When you fight when you fear
When you hate when love draws near
Its damage done, damage done,
like a setting sun, it's damage done..

All night and everyday
Endless plight we run away
From ourselves into malaise
Living hell of our own constraint
Its damage done, damage done,
like a setting sun, it's damage done..

Its too late some will say
Written fate that can't be changed
Its damage done, damage done,
like a setting sun, it's damage done..

We're all hurt, we're all broken
Too many words, never spoken
Its damage done, damage done,
like a setting sun, it's damage done..

Solar Garden - hippie pop groove?
Pulsar - in a world grown so weary, apathetic and cold, what good does intelligence and acuity of vision serve when it only accompanies a vivid awareness of precisely how horrific things have become?
Luna Muse Improv Part I (10/09/09) – cool improvised jam with an envelop filter on Matt’s bass sax
Higher Plane – sometime Manuela just gets into a deep, accepting space when she practices her Yoga. I enjoy a similar effect on marathon bike rides as well..
Tuesday Night Blues – skanky, earthy, busting up some blues on a Tuesday night in March
Why Is All I Know – another meditative piece that accompanies contemplation well..
Another Day (live bonus track) – old tune I wrote a long time ago, kind of sappy, but this has a great classic rock feel to it..

Thanks to anyone who took the time to read all this. I deeply appreciate your interest in my music. If you’re rich, please buy a copy, if you’re poor drop me a line and I’ll burn you a copy 
