1. Snowbound

Jim Hall

I bought a bass accordion from my accordion guru, Aldo Mencanini, and told Jim and

he asked me to play it for him over the phone and proceeded to write this song for us to play 

together. It is called Snowbound becuase there was a terrible snow storm the day we recorded

and John Snyder couldn't make it into the studio so Jim's wife Jane, produced the track.


2. Viva Caruso

Joe Lovano

Joe invivted me to play on his tribute to Enrico Caruso, and I did for the first time on record, a solo

which involved melody parts in both hands. 

3. Marlowe

Bobby McFerrin

This is from the record that I co-produced with Linda Goldstein, Bobby's manager and long time friend

and musical co-conspiritor, called Beyond Worlds. I played electric piano and accordion on a few tracks

and this track was one of my favorites. 

4. And It’s Supposed to Be Love

Abbey Lincoln

I loved playing accordion on this record and a joy to phrase in the breaths of this magnificent singer. 

5. Utile

Juliette Greco

I arranged and played accordion on this record for Juliette Greco. I was honored to play with this French

master who worked with the greatest accordionists of all time. I recorded this track, moments after Mike

Brecker had come in to play a scorching solo: weeks before we would record his final project,  Pilgrimage. 

It's sometimes impossible to play after Mike let's loose, but this day, it was just inspiring.
