Album Notes
I played the piano on Bourbon Street in New Orleans while working on the design of the Saturn Moon rockets at Michoud a community close to New Orleans. I am very pleased to have some of the New Orleans styles of music on this CD. Sailing south we have some Mariachi Music styles from Mexico as well. We sailed on down to Central and South America from there visiting some of the Caribbean Islands. Every where we visited we experienced the rhythms and emotions which we carefully put into our music so that it would reflect their music styles. The Clubs and their excellent Musicians perform with so much rigor and enthusiasm that we wanted the world to share the wonders of their music. Some of the music came to the Americas from Europe, but additional rhythms and musical magic was added in the Americas to make the music even more spectacular.
I feel that this CD typifies the very exciting, emotional and rhythmic music of the Caribbean and Central and South America.
