ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Special thanks to the artists who participated in the making of this album. You are all such interesting and cool people. First, to Steven Mobley, my friend since the 4th grade at Ramsey Elementary School in Monroeville PA. This is Steve's second cd album cover design for me and his artistic vision is something beyond this world. Thanks also to Zeno Messis, who co-wrote and performed on two tracks for this album ('Awakenings' and 'Flash & Flair'). When I lived in London and played with Zeno in the pop band sensation, Far Cry, we rehearsed and recorded at Zeno's house one night. His mother, Demetra, who I remember with great fondness, was a lovely woman who took pity on a starving musician and fed me a delicious hot meal and I never forgot her kindness. On 'Samba Em Tel Aviv,' I teamed up with the Brazilian bombshell with the golden, million dollar voice. Her name is Elisete and she is an elegant, ultra femme singer living in Tel Aviv Israel. I'm a big fan. She is very dedicated to her art. On this particular track, the credits, for contractual reasons, read as follows: Melody of the vocals: Elisete; Melody of the instrumental: Richard D. Ruttenberg. Thank you Elisete...I want to do more recordings with you! A rapper from Rio De Janeiro, Damien "Luck" Rodriguez has a unique slant on all things musical. I never tire of answering his many questions because he is bright and ambitious. Though we are from different cultures and have a language barrier, we often do not see eye to eye on music and argue. Nevertheless, we found common ground on a simple little song I wrote called Latina Caliente. I sent him several other songs but to my surprise he told me he could create the lyrics and sing on this one! I just couldn't see it but trusted him, so we ran with it and he delivered a tremendous performance on the song. You know, sometimes when surfing the net for new ideas and new music, you stumble on to someone who is literally from another planet artistically. This is the case with Zed Mizar of California (He's really from a musical world far far away)...When I first encountered his music and video art, I was not even halfway through it when I realized I had to work with him. Even before the video was finished, I dispatched an urgent message to him and asked if he would consider working with me on a new song. After a pleasant and humorous response in the affirmative, I worked all through the night to create the foundation of the title track to this cd album, Deep Space Funk! I sent it off to him and weeks went by and Zed kept me informed throughout as to his progress. Zed is very smart. He wrote the lyrics, sang, and played several instruments on the track. My heartfelt thanks to all the people mentioned above. I also wish to thank my family, without whom I could not flourish in this world. I love you all.
