New album coming in April

Downtown is a collection of standards recorded in one afternoon session at Hollywood’s famed Capitol Studios, engineered by the legendary Al Schmitt.

Digital release 4/26/19, CDs available from the LJ Store on 4/2/19.


Coming on Sept 28th is Touchstones – The Evolution of Fingerstyle Guitar.  

LJ’s ‘classical’ album – the tunes in this collection are historical ‘touchstones’ in the evolution of what would become known in the 20th century as fingerstyle guitar. It includes the first published Renaissance lute, vihuela and guitar pieces, then proceeds with representative examples from the Baroque, Classical and Romantic musical eras, before transitioning into the American parlor guitar repertoire, with the influential ‘Spanish Fandango.’

Now available for pre-order on iTunes and Amazon.

A transcription folio will be published by Hal Leonard in early 2019.
