    Mike,
    I got my Equilibre in the mail today and I can't remember the last time a CD moved me so much. There is something magical going on in this recording. How did you do it? I don't mean how did you and David Cullen play it; I mean, how did you make it so beautiful? Many people reading this may think that I am going over the top, but I've never heard anything like this before. It's a shame that this music like this isn't more "visible" to the general public. The average music listener should be able to benefit from this recording. Outside of the acoustic guitar/e-bass world, that probably won't happen. It's unfortunate.

    Thank you for making such an uplifting, human, and beautiful recording.

    Sincerely,
    Joe

    I really enjoy this album as well-probably my favorite fretless work ever, and the best use of an E-bow I've ever heard on "Wistful Thinking."

    Thanks so much! I have to admit I am kind of proud of that CD. Dave is a fantastic musician with a wonderful Philly soul feel combined with jazz harmonic sophistication. We've always hoped we could do more together and I'm so glad you guys are digging the disk.
