Labor Records in collaboration with Naxos is releasing a series of recordings of my work covering more than half a century! The most recent release is "Jukebox in the Tavern of Love" paired with a new work by Meredith Monk. "The Nude Paper Sermon" and "Wiretap" is a double album containing no fewer than five works; see below for details. "Civilization & its Discontents" is a words-and-music collaboration with Michael Sahl. More information, reviews and ordering (physical or digital editions) is available below or by going to Labor Records.
There’s always another tango
Mezzo Laila Salins and accordionist Bill Schimmel along with cellist Lutz Rath are still performing a version of the Accord/Discord program presented a couple of years ago at the Cell theater in Chelsea and toured in Latvia. Under the name “My Last Tango”, it includes tango arrangements by Schimmel and myself. One performance already took place on May 4th in Freehold, NJ, and another one is coming up at the Latvian Cultural Center in Melville, NY, on Saturday, May 11th, at 7 pm.
