Paul Lizewski produced a 4 song EP featuring singer/songwriter Rob Lamothe and I was fortunate to take part in the project as Arranger, Bassist and Music Director.  It was the first time I’d written for a large string section (20 piece) and I had a blast, learned a lot in the process.  Chris Miller is on drums, Paul L. on Piano, Rob L. played guitar and sang his heart out. Vivian Campbell of Def Leopard is on lead guitar.

Bruce Kaphan produced this album of songs by Gregory John Patzner and Sharlene Ayestaran.   It features an all-star cast of Nashville session players (too many to list here!).  I did the horn arrangement for 2 Trumpets, Tenor Sax and Trombone.

Another Rob Lamothe song, beautiful and spare.  Rob is playing piano and singing.  I did the String Quartet arrangement.
