CABO VERDE CRETCHEU is a new group in Los Angeles dedicated to bringing you traditional music from the islands of Cabo Verde - the beautiful archipelago west of Africa in the Atlantic. Enjoy irresistibly charming rhythms like Coladeira or the nostaligic blues of a Morna with lyrics of love, lust, patriotism and mourning in the sensual creole language. Featuring the soulful voice of Dilma, daughter of legendary creole cavaquinho player Artur (Cesaria Evora) and guitarist - vocalist Mitchell Long (Maria de Barros) The group also features the phenomenal percussionist Ritchie “Gajate" Garcia and Brazilian Cavaquinho player Jean Pierre Trapenard. Special guests will be joining us creating a Cape Verdean music workshop where we can share the island beauty with musicians and music lovers. Cretcheu means “My Love" We invite you to love Sunday evenings by the Marina with us.



Its been an amazing musical time recently. So I am doing some long needed work on my website to keep you more informed and updated to my musical world. Its a work in progress but I hope you visit and enjoy! Comments and suggestions are welcome! Some interesting news of note would include wonderful performances with Julia Fordham and her band. Her voice is surreal in its beauty. Were in rotation at the esteemed Catalina Jazz club and were featured on Craig Ferguson Late Late show on TV. I am really excited to be working with Rique Pantoja and his incredible band featuring superstars like Justo Almario, Abraham Laboriel, Walter Rodriguez and John Pena. Rique is a phenomenal musician and composer. Its an honor to be included in his band. I recorded an album with Angolan Legend Waldemar Bastos. What an experience to work with the spiritual and powerful music of this truly iconic singer. The experience was a profound connection between myself, Waldemar and producer Derek Nakamoto. I recorded an album with Tropics which is coming together nicely with the participation of Jose Marino, Cristiano Novelli, Ritchie Garcia and Frank Zotolli. More recording news of note: Got in the studio again with DJ NuMark and a session with Peter Erskine working on Takako Uemura's record.

I am looking forward to being back home. I am originally a Californian boy and enjoying being in Los Angeles but I spent so many wonderful years in Boulder that I do call it my HOME! I hope that you will join me in the band if your in Boulder for a exciting musical reunion of my group featuring my great friends Bill Kopper on Guitar, Raoul de Rossiter on Drums, EricThorin on Bass and Jeff Jenkins on Piano.
