Keller Williams - ODD CD - "For my 14th release, I went with studio versions of road tested favorites. The only exception would be the the first track (environmental song) which has never before been played live. This collection of tunes was recorded and mixed by Jeff Covert at Wally Cleaver's Recording Studio in Fredericksburg, Virginia. He as well as Jay Starling, Claude Arthur and Doug Henderson make audio appearances, but this record is primarily a solo effort with me playing all the instruments (with the exception of a few drum loops). The art work was created by Richard Biffle. The idea came from the lyrics of my science fiction bluegrass song "elephorse", which is of course a cross between an elephant and a horse. But don't be confused. That's not the elephorse on the cover but the flying 2 headed dragon that befriends it. Please enjoy!" - Keller $15
The Ragbirds - Finally Almost Ready CD - The record features 12 tracks including many brand new Ragbirds songs. We had the honor of working with producer, fiddler and multi-instrumentalist, Tim Carbone (of Railroad Earth) and Phil Nicolo at Studio 4 in Philly who mixed and mastered the songs. Phil is a Grammy-Award-winning producer and engineer who has worked with an impressively long list of top performers.
Here's what Phil had to say about the album: "I was pleasantly surprised to discover The Ragbirds new album to be a wonderful combination of clever songwriting and heartfelt performances. This will live in my CD player for a long while!"
James Carter & John Medeski - Heaven on Earth CD - Saxophonist James Carter and organist John Medeski (of the pioneering jam-band, Medeski, Martin & Wood) lead a supergroup featuring Christian McBride (bass), Adam Rogers (guitar) and Joey Baron (drums). Together they carve out a groove that captures the buzz and vitality of jam-jazz at its most exhilerating. Recorded live at the Blue Note in New York, the group throws down the funk on Django Reinhardt's "Diminishing," Larry Young's "Heaven On Earth," Leo Parker's "Blue Leo," and the songbook standard, "Street Of Dreams." $16.98

The Giving Tree Band - Great Possessions CD - The Giving Tree Band's Great Possessions mirrors the timeless qualities of the folk-rock greats without sparing the quality arrangements and production of modern indie rock. Dubbed by the Chicago Sun-Times as "the greenest of albums," this 18-song collection augments its natural sound with carbon-neutral production: 100% solar-powered recording sessions, 100% recycled paperboard case, and biodegradable shrink wrap. $15.99
Jonah Smith - Lights On CD - Images of love, war, natural disaster and political awakening weave through Jonah Smith's new album, Lights On. Its stories travel from country to city as we are taken from a lone man ice fishing in Cabin Fever to Brooklyn for a New Year's Eve celebration in the song Mrs. Cooper. Sonically, there is more consistency than Smith is likely to admit; he pulls from the deep well of American Blues and many of its offshoots: Soul, Country, and Folk to name a few. Essentially, he is a songwriter with the voice of a soul singer. $10.99
Boulder Acoustic Society - Punchline CD - The new full-length CD from the Boulder Acoustic Society is the new wave of acoustic Mountain Music: a combination of many traditional folk styles through a contemporary lens, all wrapped up in the band's virtuosic playing. Punchline also comes in an amazing, one-of-a-kind 3D stereoscope package. You gotta see it to believe it! $15.99

Now, with Krantz Carlock Lefebvre, he is returning to a recording studio to document his own music for the first time in over fifteen years .
