Funky Butter’s “Made of You” comes out August 4

Hey all–

For the past year I’ve been working hard on a record with my old band, Funky Butter. The record, Made of You finally comes out in 10 days on August 4, and you can currently stream the entire record at funkybutter.com (where you can also read more and order it). There’s 10 tunes from FB’s repertoire (plus 2 bonus tracks for pre-orders) and the record features some great guest appearances– all of which you can find out at funkybutter.com.

Currently, I’m playing music on board a ship in the Mediterranean– getting to see some great places and working on music for some new projects. And if you haven’t already, check out my live world-jazz record Una Passeggiata on YouTube and imeem and right here.

Good listening
