This is my first album project and I believe is indicative of my early years as a composer/ songwriter. Phases is truly an eclectic variety of original compositions for classical guitar, flute, harmonica, piano and voice. The styles are broad in nature, ranging from pieces containing evidence of classical-like elements, folk as well as jazz. It even includes a catchy little bluegrass number. The album was a precursor to my later New Age style of composing, which I've always indicated, "lives next door to classical" music. Cover art features the work of west-coast artist and friend Paul Marcano.
