No Worries Now...
Recorded in the spring of 2009, these are all new songs I've written over the past 18 months or so. The first collection of all-new all-original songs I've done in a while. I had a great time writing, arranging, and recording these songs. The production values are a bit bigger than some of my recent CDs. Don't worry -- it is still my natural voice and acoustic guitar, but I added a bit of mandolin and second guitar here and there. And my old pal, Frank Youngman, came by to play upright bass on most of the tracks.
So here it is: a plate-full of new songs for these weary times. The musical moods oscillate from jump swing to bluegrass to gospel — with a little taste of jazz manouche and ragtime guitar in-between. The lyrics blend whimsy, politics, history, humor & philosophy in my usual manner. Each track below has an mp3 clip of 75 seconds of each song to give you a taste. There is a link to the liner notes near the bottom of this page if you want a closer look.
