Doug has just released Picasso Tomato -his long awaited album of all original music -his first CD in several years. Some reviewers have called Picasso Tomato a "concept album." Others have noted its writing, musicianship and production values. Doug says that this album represents three years of my his best work. It is music of the heart and hundreds of studio hours. The painting on the cover reflects the artistic diversity of this CD -like a gallery where each room features a different style: abstract, realist, impressionist... A wide-ranging album with original songs spanning jazz to rock and folk with classical excursions. In addition to his electric and acoustic guitars and voice there's lots of great musicians playing a variety of instruments: violin, saxophone, piano, synthesizer, tons of harmonies, drums, bass and percussion. This is music of the round in a cube world. Or maybe versa-visa. Unexpect the expected.
