BALLET FOR A GIRL IN BUCHANNON - (Chicago cover) I can't even begin to say how proud I am of this accomplishment - a bunch of great guys from around the world getting together on the Internet, sharing their musical talents and putting in an incredible effort to recreate one of Chicago's greatest works - "Ballet For A Girl In Buchannon". Special thanks to all of my wonderful friends on Bandhub who went on this epic journey to learn all of the parts and perform them. I cannot thank you enough. I hope you all enjoy our efforts! Caveat - most of the trombone videos were so out of sync that it was near impossible to match it up with the song...I did my best!

Roll With It - Steve Winwood - This is a collaboration with my new musical friend, SaGoBa...better known as Sam...he's a cool R&B singer/keyboardist who is also a fabulous song writer. Visit his page, you'll be glad you did! Sam played all of the keyboard parts, did all vocals, recorded and mixed. I played the horn parts (Trumpet, Sax & Trombone) and the Tenor Sax solo. Thanks Sammy for allowing me to be part of your musical efforts!

WAKE UP SUNSHINE (cover) - CHICAGO First time ever trying to record EVERY part myself without any use of MIDI. I played piano, bass, all vocals, and tenor sax. I can only marginally play trumpet, trombone and drum kit, and I played those too, so I gave it my best shot! I chose to record Chicago's 'Wake Up Sunshine' because it has no guitar in it. I have ZERO ability on the guitar. Hope you enjoy my version of this 1970 Chicago tune.

Winter Games 88 by David Foster, played by yours truly. I sequenced the backing tracks too...since I only have one video camera, I took a few angles and edited them together and dubbed in my recording. Cheesy, yes, but it is all of my playing!

"Maureen's Song" started as an experiment recording of all plug in synth sounds...turned out to be a pretty cool tune so I dedicated it to my sweetheart. All sounds from Edirol Super Quartet and Edirol HyperCanvas except the synth solo, from Arturia MiniMoog V
