(See my Quotes Page.)

This recording is also being used by professional service providers including nurses, teachers, ministers, bodyworkers and psychologists to assist in their work.

This solo flute collection was recorded live to DAT at Aaron Studios in Hollywood, Florida with
engineering by Jeffrey A Lehmann. Pre-Mastering was done by Cliff Rawnsley at Sunflower Studios
in Hollywood, Florida. Final CD Mastering was done by Ed Mashal at Alle Audio in Hollywood, Florida.
The CD covers and inserts were printed by AIM Riverside Press in Pompano Beach (Thanks Craig!),
and the CDs were duplicated by Trackmaster in Fort Lauderdale.

In other words, this CD was produced entirely in Broward County, Florida. Go Broward!

My song "Against the Law" is part of the "Songs of War and Politics" - Volume 1 compilation CD, released at the Folk Alliance International Conference 2011! This recording was part of the Nightrainbow sessions, recordings made in Boston in the 1980s with an all-star all-women's band and engineers, but never released at the time. "No Nukes Swing" was also recorded at this session, and I'm thrilled that these songs have finally been commercially released! You can listen and purchase the "Songs of War and Politics" CD at FestivaLink and iTunes. "Against the Law" is also available for individual download on iTunes! Proceeds from sales of this superb album will help purchase musical instruments for returning combat veterans!

Special thanks to Stevie G. of Strychnine for helping me get my master done for this project on a very short timeline!

I'm excited that my song "No Nukes Swing" appears on the "PeaceSongsCNY" compilation CD, released by Syracuse Peace Council in 2012, in honor of SPC's 75th Anniversary! I learned so much from the dedicated folks at SPC when I lived in Syracuse, and the writing of this song, as well as the direction of my life and career were very much informed by my time there. You can listen to and purchase the "PeaceSongsCNY" CD here, as well as on CD Baby and iTunes. Videos from the great CD Release Party can be found on YouTube here. Proceeds from sales of this superb album will help support the important peace and justice work of SPC!

Special thanks to Mitch Clarvit for helping me get my master done for this project on a very short timeline!

My song "Forsythia for Cynthia" appears in an all-star version on the 1996 XS local music sampler CD, with turns by Nicole Yarling (violin), Michael Bianco (guitar), Cyndi Rapp (piano), Bill Meredith (drums and percussion), Stephan Mikés (sitar) and John Eatmon (bass). And of course yours truly on flute. Sales of this CD benefit the Broward Mental Health Association. I think City Link Magazine still has a few copies left if you want one.

I guest on albums by:

My music is also part of a wonderful children's yoga DVD by the aforementioned Shana - visit BananaYoga! or call 866/GO-NANAS to order.
