Released 2017
Released 2017
A uniquely dimensional song cycle uniting the talents of visionary poet-songwriter Stevie Kalinich and multi-instrumental-composer-songwriter-singer Neil Rosengarden for a sometimes dark, sometimes joyful, utterly exhilarating musical journey.
NOTES
Quick, raw and real. It started in November 2016 when the first title popped into my head. I had been sending music tracks to Stephen Kalinich hoping that he might write some lyrics...

Constructed of a never-ending variety of colors, moods, and rhythms. Wise & witty. Highly recommended by Jimmy Roberts, Composer of "I Love You, You're Perfect, Now Change" Off-Broadway's longest running revue in NY theater history
NOTES
The Plaid Album came together over 1986-1990. I was writing and recording alot during that time on a four track cassette recorder, and throwing the daily work into a closet until one day I decided to dub it all on to a 2 track quarter inch deck, and then spent a month or two cutting up the tape and reassembling it until it was finished.
