CD Sampler of In-Tuition Blues and Mandopoly Albums



Given that many individuals still like CDs (as opposed to purely digital options like my albums Blues and Mandopoly), I offer a CD sampler of the best cuts from both albums.  This project originally attempted to fund my doctoral work in counseling psychology.

With a noticeably blues orientation, the CD features my song-smithing along w/ choice covers of Janis Joplin, George Harrison, and Amos Milburn.  Original tunes genre-jump from west coast jump blues, Chicago blues, Memphis blues, classic rock, blues rock, Dawg, and bluegrass.

The guest artists on the album include Grammy-winner and mandolinist Mike Compton, blues guitarist/singer Gordon Bonham, guitarist/singer Phil Richter, harmonica player Tom Harold, drummer J.J. Perry, guitarist Will Scott, drummer Bennett Williams, saxist Joe Donnelly, and bassist Scott Kellogg.  Yours truly contributes mandolin, octave mandolin, electric guitar, baritone uke, electric and double basses, and cello.

The CD is available for $15 shipping included in the U.S.
