"Violin crossings" comes from multiple associations: an actual violin term, crossover music, crossways/crossroads, and such terms as cross- pollination, cross-cultural, as well as the intersections between myself and other individual musicians. Many styles, many local musicians!
Recording is done, mixing is done, the tracks have been sent to West West Side Music in New York...then manufacturing is next!! A big thank you to all that helped with this project!
CD release date is set for Tuesday, November 9th in local stores, iTunes, Amazon, and more....
