1ST SOLO CD RELEASE!! I'm wrapping up work on my first solo CD titled: "Seems To Me". Nine original songs presenting a very diverse collection of Blues, Pop, R&B, Jazz, Reggae and even a bit of Dixieland style clarinet...yes, I studied clarinet for many years and just had to include my best Artie Shaw and Pete Fountain. "It Had To Be You" (track 10) is the only cover song on this record and it is a tribute to all the living room jams with mom and dad.
I recorded these songs at Chapman Recording and Mastering in Lenexa, Kansas along with the help of some very talented friends:
UPRIGHT & ELECTRIC BASS - JAMES ALBRIGHT HAMMOND B3 ORGAN - KEN LOVERN PIANO - ROGER WILDER, WALTER BRYANT DRUMS / PERCUSSION - BRIAN STEEVER, RON STILL GUITAR & VOCALS - RICK BACUS TRUMPET - STANTON KESSLER SAX - DAVE CHAEL CLARINET - RICK BACUS BACKING VOCALS ON “HANGIN’ ON” AND “LOVE’S GREATER THAN FEAR” - JULIA HAILE & MOLLY HAMMER HORN ARRANGEMENTS ON “HANGIN’ ON” & “SEEMS TO ME” - STANTON KESSLER
