**Caro and Manasia,as positioned. MIke Caro on the left, Chris Manasia on the right. Great story how Chris got back with playing music with MIke Caro after 25 years not. Chris's house was ruined by Hurricane Sandy in Staten Island. Mike Caro found out and told him to come live with him for as ling as he needed. That;s how I met Chris Manasia, who has become a valued friend. TWO GREAT PEOPLE, you;re about to hear, not just great musicians. Mike Caro is who produced the baseball song I sing on that gets played at major league parks on every Opening Day since 2008. He and I have recorded the music for Mike Appel's up coming musical, "In The Shadow Of The King". Appel is the "Born To Run" producer and founder and manager of Springsteen for all albums up to Born To Run. Caro mixes Appel's songs, as well as playing guitar and bass on many of Appel's intense songs for the musical. Wish I could play you some of the songs we did. Not released yet. If I get permission to preview one or so, you guy will be co firsts to hear them, along with the songwriting network of "Just Plain Folks" we belong to.
**So, here is Mike Caro, (former Sony studio great), and our close friend, Chris Manasia), as they appear in the video. (Their names listed on the page is reversed as to how they appear). Enjoy this cool cover of Penny Lane! They recorded the song,,,,THEN played to it for the video shots. Mike Caro did all the camera positioning and editing.
*Good stuff....keep 'em coming! :)
Oh man,,,they and Mike Caro especially, has SO much music of all styles to enjoy! OK,,,will do. I think I will post a Mike Caro playing everything song, (which he has a lot of). The one I have in mind is called "Gypsy". He did it when feeling "normal bad" with his conditions,,,so he was able to record all the parts and video himself and edit it all in one night. Knowing HOW he feels when it just normal bad,,,,I am on wonder how he can do just one of those things. Never mind the whole thing you are about to witness,,,and HOW good he is with everything. Drums too! Look for 'Mike Caro's "Gypsy" Studio Performance' coming to a bag site near you soon! haha
Thanks,,,I will let Mike and Chris know of your listening and comment.
