I'm pleased to announce that "Leaving the Path" will be released on April 10th. The CD release party will be at the Stone Spiral, my favorite venue, and there will be guest musicians performing with me that night. A lot of work has gone into this project, not just from me, but from friends like Chad Ross, who did the mixing and mastering for the record, Alvy Caby and Bryson Gerard, who performed on the record, and my wife, Kathi Corbett-Otto, who has spent many hours working on the CD cover layout. I'd also like to thank all my friends and fans who donated to my crowd sourcing effort, allowing this release to stay on schedule. The CD will be available on Amazon, CD baby and ITunes soon.
"Leaving the Path" represents a departure from the traditional, new age style of play that was featured on my first CD, "Rain on Broken Glass". The new record is more upbeat, more energetic and experimental. I've embraced the more diverse world music aspect of my music, with world percussion, kalimba and other instruments backing up the flute. I hope you envoy this new path that I am on.
