COVID-19 Project

Remote collaboration projects in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Someday After a While (Jun 30, 2020)

A favorite from our Wicked Trio set list, we added a few more layers than you get with a live performance. Composed by Cesta Ayers.

Manha de Carnival (Apr 21, 2020)

Luiz Bonfa's classic Bossa Nova from the movie Black Orpheus. This was a wonderful collaboration with Lars Johnson - vibes, Scott Lariviere - bass, and Kareem Sanjaghi - drums.

Les Blues - Wicked Trio (Apr 11, 2020)

The first collaboration in the COVID-19 Project. My Wicked Trio bandmates Scott Lariviere (bass, keys) and Kareem Sanjaghi (drums, phone) each recorded their parts separately at home. Les Blues is a Yardbirds-influenced tune I wrote in 1979 about a guy in a dead-end life in a factory town. Glad I didn't end up there.
