Album Notes
The Atlanta Years 1991-2002

It was a time of thirty mile gig commutes through 12 lane mayhem, homeless panhandlers nightly trying to make off with your gear, “spec'ed” all night hip-hop studio sessions that later become #1 hits...for someone else! But, regardless of all that, Atlanta was a great music town ; and it's where I created most of the tunes for this re-release.

While under personal artist management by Thomas J Miller in Los Angeles, I produced a cd called “John G. McLane” around 1993 or 1994. What an original title! This was sort-of released in Europe. Later on, while actually functioning as a metal band producer / country guy / wedding band member / generic studio engineer in Atlanta, I decided I just hadn't had enough of the real music industry and presto...another jazzy cd called “Keepin' It Casual” was completed around 2000! Neither are still available & are the sources for this “collection”. Not all, but some of the best and most interesting instrumental / R&B stuff from the Atlanta years!

On listening back to the material for the first time in many years, it seems to stand up well! Adventurous with not to many cornball “smooth jazz” artifacts, this stuff often falls more into a “fusion jazz” style. Lots of time changes and “dazzling” musical figures! You'll even pick up a healthy dose of Zappa-isms.

I threw in a bonus cut called “Terydactl Treat” which was written even further back (1989 maybe) for my drummer Mark Siracusa to play...because he loved the fusion!

Here's to the 90's and Atlanta. What a trip!
