On a personal note, my last recording, “Table for 2” which was released in 2010, turned out to be a very successful project for my recording career and an incredible experience to be able to work with some amazingly talented people in the music business.
Having written two of the many songs (“Table for 2” and “True Blue”) that made it to commercial radio from that CD I felt much validation as a songwriter. For many weeks “Table for 2” was on the Billboard Airplay Charts. It peaked at #12 on the Billboard Indicator Chart for airplay in the nation in the Smooth Jazz genre.
In 2011 I broadened my focus in songwriting and wrote songs to pitch to publishers for TV, film and for other artists to record. This was a way for me to create any style of song with no boundaries and not concern myself with the releasing or the marketing of a new project.
Previously I had written and recorded the song “Who What Where” for my “Smooth Sax” CD.
It was re-recorded years later by singing sensation Timmy Maia and was receiving some commercial airplay at the same time as “Table for 2”. Simultaneously “I Didn’t Mean To Say It” from this CD was picked up by a publisher in CA to use for TV & film. As I was hitting a high water mark of success as a songwriter in my own career, (Thank God for that) it kept my drive strong to keep working at my craft.
In such a short time I had enough original material for a couple of full length CD’s on my hands. After narrowing it down to 11 original songs and a couple personal favorites that I covered (“Slide” and “One”), the “No Boundaries” collection was born.
Thanks for taking the ride with me and I hope you enjoy listening to the CD as much as I did creating it.
