A Ghost Of A Chance

This was a TV show for the now nearly dead Rysher. Randy Gerston was the music supervisor on this. It was a wonderful opportunity to work with him. Since he supervised “Titanic” he opened his own shop: Seehear Music.

Understanding Evolution – The Learning Channel

This is such a sweet cue I couldn’t help but want a few more people to hear it. John Wubbenhorst plays flute here. And I am playing the guitar! The performers here are Nery Arevalo on Udu and Steve Bloom on Bierenbau. Is this a great sound or what?

This is a score I wrote for a wonderful filmmaker named Sonnny Izon. It was narrated by Lou Diamond Phillips.

It is the amazing story of the 1st and 2nd Filipino Army Regiments who fought in the re-taking of the Philippines in WWII.

The Appalachians – PBS

These two tracks are from a three part series for PBS called The Appalachians. The brilliant Phylis Geller produced this under the guiding hand of MariLynn Evans. Sam Green and Barbara Burst edited. The best part of this was putting together an all-star string band: Bob (Sparky) Spates on fiddle and mandolin, Chris Kosky on bass, and Paul Bell on his various guitars. I played the banjo (yes…. who knew?). The recordings were all done at Cue Recording Studios in Falls Church, VA with Ken Shubert engineering. The show premiered on Nashville Public Television in March 2005.
