Album Notes
I still remember the first day in the studio with Daniel Barrett.

As he set up the mike, and I put together the mouthpiece and reed on my baritone sax, he looked at me and said, “On one level this is an insane thing to do, but let’s do it and see what occurs.”

The result?


I played the baritone, tenor, and alto saxophones.
Daniel mixed the music and added some tasty sounds.
I wrote and recorded some hypnotic odes, or prayers.
We ended up with ten tracks – the first five with the poems at an audible level, and the second five with the prayers at a subliminal, or below conscious, level.
I decided to call the album Afflatus, which means, “sudden Divine inspiration.”
And the album is done.
The miracle is complete.
When Mark Hallman, who mastered the album, heard it, he said, “This is the best music you’ve recorded yet. A masterpiece.”

When Mathew Dixon, my partner on several albums, heard it, he said, “It sounds fantastic! I just finished listening and it sounds incredible!”

"It's mesmerizing!" - Lori Anderson
I’m about as proud as any musician could be.
