I hope you order and enjoy my newly released album: "More..." produced by multi-talented musician extraordinaire: Michael J. Parlett. It is a collection of hits from the1960s and range from R&B gems: "Since I Fell For You," and "You Don't Have to Say You Love Me," to show stopping standards: "Up A Lazy River," and Rock-a-Bye Your Baby." New treatments to girl group jewels include: "It's In His Kiss," (The Shoop, Shoop Song) duetted with talented songstress, Lori Jenaire and "Will You Still Love Me Tomorrow?" I hope you fondly reminisce with "Sabor a Mí" and "Mas Qué Nada", proudly sung in Spanish and Portuguese. I especially want you to enjoy our duet, "The Look of Love," sung in English and Spanish; (we borrowed the idea from Burt Bacharach and Vikki Carr...muy suave). When you hear the title song "More...," with a Mambo rhythm and Santana guitar styles...stand back for Michael's sax solo...dynamite! This collection of songs includes classic tunes from the 60s all performed and arranged in a contemporary, up-to-date style. Featuring some of the finest musicians around. The grooves and beats are infectious and are sure to get you tapping your feet and dancing! Brief Bio- * "Born in East LA!"
