    My new ‘Gyspybilly, Surf, Western Swingy’ album Track 1 sneak peak! Hot duet with Paul Pigat!

    Hey ya’ll’ finished tracking twin guitar leads for a song I wrote for Paul. It is the opener on my new instrumental record!

    This is a teaser of the head and solo section.…For the solo: Paul on Right, Me on Left…(Dave Biller on Steel) old school Les Paul twin style (Not heard in Gypsy Swing though).

    During the verses- I play the main head, Paul plays complimentary riffs in the distance. Some killer lines to lift once the record is out! Paul really brings the fire, writing and taste to this style of playing, and it was fun as you might imagine to harmonize!



    I am blessed to have 10 of my guitar player buds on the record (Duets, whole songs, solos etc…)

    Paul Pigat, TK Smith (TK wrote one of the tunes on the record), Adam Lopez, Redd Volkaert, RJ Ronquillo, Pat Capocci, Tommy Harkenrider, Buzz Campbell, Dave Biller
    …and if we can get a Chicago studio in time another long time inspirational influence Chris Casello who I just finished writing his tracks today.

    Hope you enjoy this sneak peak! The record will be out in 10 weeks (unless we find an International label) 14 instrumentals, 1 vocal Easter egg. THANK YOU friends! Appreciate you all!

    That sounds fantastic!! If you do get to Chicago to record let me because I’ve been getting up there pretty often so maybe we can get together if you have the time and go hear some blues on the north side

    Fantastic! I also hear many similarities to my own biggest influence, Marc Ribot.
    Really great sounds, and perfect phrasing...well done!

    Great track!
    Best thing I've heard in a long time.
    Maybe since B'hiki Bop came out.
    I hope there will be a CD version.

    Love this gypsy jazz vibe, not many people can tackle it. Big fan of Paul’s stuff with Cousin Harley so let us know when the CD is available.
