  • Is This Love?, from the CD called Super Ball by The Iguanas, produced by Keith Keller and the Iguanas, 1996, Margaritaville Records.
    The Iguanas are a New Orleans based Roots Rock Band. They combine Chicano Rock and some great sounds.  Check it out!
  • Warmdaddy in the Garden of Swing ~ Wessell Anderson Average Customer Review:: Release Date: October 4, 1994.   ”Wess Anderson's playing contains the essence of soul, that's why we call him “WarmDaddy.”  This comment, spoken by Anderson's part-time employer and musical foil Wynton Marsalis (when Wessell was in college he joined Wynton Marsalis' band). Check it out!
  • Ocean of Tears, and Silvertone Boogie, from the CD called Magic Touch by Ron Thompson & the Resistors,  1998, Poore Boy Records.
    Wonderful rhythm & blues style.  If you liked John Lee Hooker and BB King, you will really enjoy Ron Thompson's interpretations. You can also see Ron performing at various venues in the San Francisco Bay area.  Check it out!
  • Tiempo di Tango, from the CD called Incitation to Desire, with Yvar Mikhashoff.  Classic tango music from 1945 to 1993, released in 1995 by New Albion Records. Since I am a tango buff, I have to share some of my favorite dancing pieces. Yvar Mikhashoff (1945-1992) was internationally known as an interpreter of 20th century piano music. Check it out.
  • Mi Buenos Aires querido, from the CD called Tangos, with Carlos Gardel, and Michel Plasson and the Orchestre du Capitole De Toulouse.  More tangos - as you can guess, this CD was recorded in France.  Recorded in 1992 by EMI, it has some of the great classic tangos of all time.    Check it out!  See more about Gardel at:
