ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
This first batch of “goodies” was a lot of fun to work up thanks to help from some amazing musicians and my studio collaborator, Michael McGregor.

Michael is a gifted keyboard player and does some particularly tasty work on 'The New, Jersey Bounce'. That track also features the cool voice of Windy Karigianes and some awesome solos from bassist Keith Jones and alto sax player Reinhold Schwarzwald.

Veteran LA singer Les Lake helped me out on vocals on 'All Nude All Nite' – a song that also features the lead guitar work of New Orleans’ Stephen Landon. 'One Way In One Way Out' also features some wild guitar licks from funky front-man Aaron Steinberg, aka Capt. Danger.

INSPIRATION FOR THE “GOODIE GARDEN” NAME:
If anyone from where I grew up in Montesano, WA remembers a little coffee shop downtown called The Goodie Garden, then you know where I got the inspiration for my music site. When I was about 3 years old, I spent many mornings there with my mom and her lady friends as they visited, drank coffee, and introduced me to the irresistible pleasures of maple bars and glazed donuts. Sweet!
