Great Selection!

I would like to add that track 12, "Volcano", by the Hula girls, also features Lucas Vigor on bass, background vocals and percussion. (in case anyone cared), as well as Dominic Tucci on drums and vocals...here is a picture of Dom and I, in the studio, recording this great song!



Volcano is one of my favorite songs on that album, by the way.

Thanks for adding the info, Lucas. When I say "featuring" that usually means musicians who soloed or had an especially prominent role on that track. I would love to list all of the musicians on every track but that can get a bit unwieldy, especially when you are dealing with larger aggregations, like Duke Ellington's Orchestra.
