New Projects

NEW CD RELEASE: Michel Gentile and Tony Romano: Flesh and Steel (DT 003)
Michel (flute) and Tony (acoustic guitar) have recorded a beautiful CD of Brazilian classics and originals including bossa nova, jazz, and choro. Their interplay and unique interpretations are full of fire and imagination. CD Release date coming soon!

NEW QUARTET CD: This August I'll be recording a new quartet project with guitarist Mark McCarron, bassist Doug Largent and drummer Russ Meissner. We've been writing and rehearsing a pile of new songs and I'm really looking forward to hearing this one!

MAX POLLAK/PAUL CARLON DUO CD: Max and I had so much fun recording the two duo tracks on ROOTS PROPAGANDA that we decided to plan an entire CD of Carlon/Pollak madness. We're currently sorting through material and brainstorming ideas. Stay tuned!
