REALLY nice internet sessions for Andy Snitzer

ust did a handful of tracks for the great Andy Snitzer here in my home studio. He sent me the tracks and I recorded the drums and percussion and sent them back. Such great music - funky, melodic, super well produced and recorded. Andy is a freak; seems like there's nothing he doesn't do well. Look out for the record - it will be coming out soon under his name; and if I can get him to consent, I'll have some excerpts here in the internet sessions section.
