Summer Updates, 2010

Hello All!

In May I recorded two solo works for two separate Albany Records releases.  The first, “Mi Tango” is an eight-minute homage to Piazzolla and Buenos Aires by Lexington based composer Hayg Boyadjian.  It will be released in mid-September on Albany Records.  I’ll be giving the public premiere of the 2010 version of “Mi Tango” on Oct. 2 in Wellfleet.

The second is a new lullaby by David Patterson called “Counting Sheep”.  It will be part of an album of his works due out in 2011.

In July I joined forces with baritone Donald Wilkinson for his album Classic American Songs.  The album features a number of wonderful songs from Stephan Foster to Broadway.  I arranged Eden Abba’s “Nature Boy”, and two Stephan Foster songs, “Jeanie with the Light Brown Hair” and “Beautiful Dreamer”.  For the Foster we were joined by Orlando Cela, who, it turns out, did the whistling on “Berceuse” by David Vayo on my New Lullaby CD.

In August I met with composer Frank E. Warren to work on his new lullaby, and received a new lullaby from Michael Veloso, as well as a second lullaby from David Patterson.  I also submitted scores to Italian publisher Berben for a possible anthology of New Lullabies, which would be edited by yours truly.

On August 13th I and performed a couple of solos and was interviewed on Fernando’s Hideaway (BNN) by guest host Leonard Caplan (no relation).  The interview and performances can be found on my YouTube Channel:

Regarding performances, a great thanks goes out to Carolyn Frost for her kind recommendation, for I had the honor of performing a solo recital at North Hill.  A great audience!  I had to stay for an extra 45 minutes to answer questions about composers and the history of the guitar.  A concert of Contemporary Music at the Lily Pad in Cambridge started my August.

I’ll be performing my final concert of the season on Saturday, August 28 at 7pm at the Cataumet United Methodist Church.  Cataumet is on Cape Cod, just 1hr south of Boston.  The church is across the street from luthier Steve Connor’s shop, so for guitarists it is a great opportunity to piggyback two wonderful guitar events.  Note: I play a Steve Connor guitar.
