Vita Beata

I am very happy to announce that my new album, "Vita Beata" will be released on most digital platforms on May 1st. It's all new stuff written once again from the bass up, in new directions. You can listen and/or download it as of now, April 19th, pre-release at my website,

"Vita Beata" features Miles Jay and Ian Jay on many instruments, Hannah Jay singing lead and backing vocals, and some shining performances by my friends and special guests: Victor Wooten: lead vocal, Howard Levey: harmonica and keyboards, Rod Castro: guitar, Luke Notary: percussion, Liz McBryde: violin, Will Magid: trumpet, and my Weird Al bandmate Ruben Valtierra tickling some keys. I hope you like it!
