As a founding member of the now defunct prog-folk/rock group ECLIPSE, Mark Barthel has been writing interesting music most of his life. (The other founding member, Nicholas Goluses, later went on to study with Segovia in Spain and now teaches guitar at Eastman). With 'The Season's Changing' Barthel showcases his unique style on 10 originals and 1 song by Robin Lane. The CD features the powerful vocals of Mark and Robyn Barthel and the incredible instrumentation of Barthel and John Carrozza. With this outing Carrozza puts on a clinic in the art of rock guitar soloing. This CD is a must-have for all guitarists. Guest artists include Phil McArthur (Nestor Torres, David Lee Roth) on violin, Bobby Tynes on sax, and Martin Hahn on flute.
