This is a brand new composition entitled “Ambiente Con Salsa”, a kind of a tongue in cheek mixing of electronic ambient sounds over an Afro-Cuban groove. I’m considering this, along with other compositions to follow, as a prototype for recording using the performance as a basis for live musicians to play and improvise with. The bass solos are mine using my Fodera Emperor 5 string electric bass using brand new pickups and electronics and restrung to now include a high “C” string on top instead of the low “B” on the bottom.

This tune, "Night Sky In Bulawayo", was composed on my iPhone while in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe after a particularly spectacular night sky with many stars and a meteor too! 

This piece is from my latest album, Memories Of Russia, entitled  “Road To Izhevsk”.
