Preview of songs from forthcoming recording project, working name "Globe-billy". American roots songs, collected and original, that reference the world beyond our shores...an old Kentucky ballad about the Crusades, a country song based on a work by French cabaret legend George Brassens, a Chinese version of an old-timey vaudeville number, and...well, you get the picture. That's the first set; the second will feature some of the newest and best, and some old favorites and creative covers. City Island is a bit of coastal New England that got stranded in the Bronx, always worth a trip...and the Cafe has a swell light menu, good wine, espresso, and pasta...make it Sunday supper!
