Tell us about a project you worked on you are especially proud of and why. What was your role?
creation of a whole new musical vibe called Rapazzi described by HDMusic Now's Jody Friedman as follows: "With gut wrenching, poetic lyrics in the vein of Leonard Cohen and a vocalist with the rugged sincerity of Johnny Cash, Rapazzi is the brainchild of a gifted Brazilian composer/producer, an American lyricist and seasoned vocalists living in Mexico. The result of their collaboration are retro Mexi-Cali infused beat generation exhortations on the meaning of life in the early 21st Century."
