I'm happy to report that there's three new CDs available that I contributed keyboards to, and they're all excellent. Nada Surf's new record "The Weight Is A Gift"; Amy Rigby's "Little Fugitive" and Ryan Adam's "Jacksonville City Nights". The Nada Surf record and the Amy Rigby record both feature keyboards recorded at my studio Carousel (my first official credits!) and the Ryan Adams CD was recorded in a fast & furious week at LoHo Studios down in the LES. Check 'em out!

I'll be playing keys for Ronnie Spector, the "Original Bad Girl Of Rock & Roll" this Wednesday night, August 3 at 7 PM. It's a free concert at Rockefeller Park in the World Finanacial Center in Battery Park City. We'll playing all of her classics; "Be My Baby", "Baby, I Love You", and even the ultra-obscure George Harrison song, "Trysome Buysome". We'll be joined by the Uptown Horns for this show, so stop by! It should be great fun, and it's FREE. For more information: Click Here
I'm very excited to be on several tracks on Martha Wainwright's new (self-titled) CD. Martha's an excellent talent, and this CD was years in the making. Her brother Rufus appears on the CD, as well as her mom (Kate McGarrigle), Garth Hudson, Jane Scarpantoni and Erin Hill. You can check out samples at Amazon and Itunes. Check out her website at: www.MarthaWainwright.com
Check out Sean Altman singing "'39", recorded live on February 12, 2005 at the (sadly, now defunct) Fez Nightclub in NYC (See previous post). We're gearing up for the encore of the Queen show, which will be on April 9 at the Bowery Ballroom. Listen Here
