Acknowledgements: Mark Stillman, Yanaris Asimakes, Jim Price and Tim O'Keefe are great musicians, and working with them is always an inspiration.
Niki Stavrou-Valens and Maryam Yusufzadeh have also provided me with an opportunity to acquire practical experience as an accompanist in the complex rhythms of the Balkans and the Near East. Thanks also to friends and colleagues at the Loring Cafe.

Reviews

Wielding a Taylor 812-C, he channels more current than most of his electric counterparts. Fresh, exotic, and totally cool. - Guitar Player Magazine, April 1997
