Ninsun Poli Project

We just finished Ninsun Poli's 4 song CD at our studio. Ninsun is a very talented singer/song writer from Sweden. She is the sister of my friend Nabu Poli who lives in LA. I had worked with Ninsun on a project a couple of years ago and I was amazed to see how much she has grown as a singer, she has got great pitch and her own style. Nabu and I co-produced this project and we are very proud of the result.

The rhythm section for this project was Dionne Hairston - drums, Grecco Burratto - Guitar, Russell Ferrante - Keys , Nabu Poli - keys, Hussain Jiffry - Bass and keys, Adam Jackson and Naiyomisha - back ground vocals, Wendell Kelly, Rick Rossi and Mike McGuffey - Horns. We finished the project in a week. We clocked in 18 hour days! I am back on the road with Al Mckay and we are in Tunisia at the moment, performing at the Hammett R&B festival. Should have some sound bytes up on this project soon.
