Here are selected tracks for your listening pleasure.

1. "Burundi" - Based on a 6/8 African MIDI drum pattern, this song was heard on many stations and programs in America and abroad including "New Horizons" on KHIH in Denver.

2. "Baja Blue" - A smooth jazz number that was a favorite of DJ Jim Miller who hosted the show "Nightlife" on WCSY in St. Joseph, MI. I was delighted to see PWO on the playlist with some of my favorite musicians such as Grover Washington, Jr and Bob James.

3. "Raindancer" - one of my personal favorites! To me, it evokes South American jungles and strange exotic creatures and locales.

4. "Amazon Babies" - a personal favorite of Chito Gebhart, host of "The Morning Breeze" on KSBR in Mission Viejo, CA. Titus Levi of Keyboard Magazine said, "... he turns a dizzying array of swirling rhythms and melodies into a charming musical spell. On... 'Amazon Babies', he slides back toward more of a jazz bag, stretching out for a brief piano solo in the midst of the shuttering, shimmering landscape of struck, shaken, and rattled percussion samples".

5."Kimmie's Dream" - written for my niece, Kimerli Cora (Trujillo) Affuso who was my best friend when she was three and I was about thirty years older. She is still very dear to me and like the daughter I never had. I treasure her and her beautiful family though they live far from me.
