Welcome to this showcase of my most recent recordings! The Liquid Blues album offers a bunch of my latest originals in an eclectic mix of styles; Take These Hands features my solo-multitrack renditions of inspirational favorites; also: recent tracks from the Duo-tones, Surfaris and Hepcats, plus lots more from other projects...
Stranger From Durango
I did this solo (multitrack) for a Ritchie Podolor tribute CD (yet to be released). Along with writing this tune, he was a prolific studio guitarist (with whom I played on a number of sessions in the ´60s).
Your Name is Holy
This CD is full of my instro multitrack versions of many of my favorite Christian songs. This is a popular contemporary worship song...
Take These Hands
The Lonely One
Duo-tones + 2
One of my favorite Duane Eddy tunes. Gil & I are backed on this live version by Dusty Watson on drums & Ron Eglit on bass. (Baja Cantina, Venice CA 7/25/07; recorded by Chrome Oxide)
Book ´im, Danno!
Jingle Bell Rock
My goal here was to duplicate all the parts of the original Bobby Helms version verbatim.
Christmas With the Hepcats
Breezy tune from this album project; I played the main lead and Randy Mitchell played rhythm. (I don´t know who played the acoustic intro - that was added later...)
Streets of Gold
a PJ original  An epic ballad with an Americana flavor. It was intended for my Liquid Blues album, but I held it back because it´s unfinished — I plan to add a violin section to frost this cake!
I play lead on this - one of my favorite Dick Dale tunes.
Plugged In & Live
a PJ original Rehearsal recording made at drummer Dave Raven´s home studio. Earlier versions of this tune include Good Guys (´63) & Packards (´80). And it was a single release for Eddie & the Showmen (´63)
Santa Claus is Coming to Town
Better watch out...
Christmas witth the Hepcats
a PJ original  Solid Americana, with passion
Be Still My Soul
The utmost in reverence. Note the Ennio Morricone homage here and there (in subtle reference to the production style he brings to his "Spaghetti Western" scores).
