Recording in 2011...

Welcome to 2011 everyone…

As I look forward to the coming year and the various projects that I'll be doing, the first order of business will be recording. I've been gigging in NYC with various new configurations over the past year and I'm in the final stages of putting a band together to take into the studio. I'll be happy to tell you all about it once it's finalized but in the meantime I'd like to ask for your help.

The business of recording and releasing music is still very much up in the air. Established labels have been hit hard and most have no budgets to produce projects. I'm no stranger to D.I.Y. and have released a number of recordings (and even a DVD) on my own label "prime source". In order to help get "prime source" "primed" for the next new project we need to move a little bit of the existing catalogue, just to get the ball rolling. I imagine many of you have one or another of my titles either from "prime source" or from the "hatOLOGY" label (the legendary Swiss label with whom I've worked closely for over fifteen years).

Well, there's never been a better time to fill out your collection and pick up those couple of titles that you never got around to. You'll help me out greatly towards getting the new band going and you'll be picking up some collectors items since most of the hatOLOGY titles are officially out of print now. I have a handful of "last copies" on a number of those releases that you won't find anywhere else.

Have a look at the website and feel free to e-mail me with any questions you might have about the music or whatever. You can order directly off the site using Pay Pal. There are some videos and sample tracks up on the NEWS PAGE. The DISCOGRAPHY PAGE page offers information about each release. And the ORDERING PAGE makes it easy.

Here is what I have at the moment:
