My old guitar teacher, friend, and brilliant New Orleans musician, Carl Leblanc has just released his brand new recording- Those Who Have Ears. It's available at CD Baby amongst other services and... help out an artist and pick up a copy.
I wrote a string quartet arrangement for one of the pieces on the record and am honored to find out that he wanted to use it on its own for the finale of the record. It's called Hesed if you pick up a copy.
Carl is a great guitarist and all around musician who always comes out with a landscape of musical statements on record that really shows all he can breathe life into for a listener. He has played on some key New Orleans recordings and has played in many of the greatest groups associated with the city including the Dirty Dozen Brass Band and Preservation Hall Jazz Band, Allen Toussaint- (actually the list is so extensive- I'll let you music fans seek out the rest of the bio information). He was also guitarist for the Sun Ra Arkestra for about 9 years and luckily my generous guitar teacher for a long time.
This one is worth checking out and many great musicians were involved...
