   We are hard at work mixing the songs we recorded in New Orleans last year. This is a very different album than any we have ever made in the past. Over the next few years, three different versions will be released. The first is titled "Partially Domesticated Amazon:Exposed" and features the live trio recordings with Jesse-piano & vocals, Andrew Wolf-bass & Johnny Vidacovich-drums.  Not exactly a concept album, it is definitely a journey through themes of hope, gratitude, tenacity, love, friendship & overcoming the challenges and obstacles life throws at all of us from time to time.

   Now for the audience participation segment, the cd can not be completed without your help. Help! Please? I have started a chip-in for the new cd project and here is the link for that:

 We recorded 15 songs live in New Orleans for two days after Mardi Gras, 2011 and it may have been the best two days I've ever experienced! This cd has all the right elements of jazz, rock, folk and funk. I just know it's gonna groove you baby, then soothe you, then groove you again. You may even find some of your new favorite songs on this one!
