Boustead is probably best known as the lyricist and featured vocalist with Contemporary Jazz KeyboardistGregg Karukashaving collaborated on many of Gregg’s CDs. Their songs “In My Dreams” and “Sound Of Emotion” in particular were radio hits in the early days of the “Wave” radio format.
“Blend” is all the more delicious thanks to the help of some great L.A. musicians like guitarists Grant GeissmanThom Rotella and Phil Sheeran. Karukas plays acoustic piano on two tracks and mixed 11 of the songs. Soprano sax and flute are courtesy of Katisse Buckingham; and accordion virtuosoNick Ariando adds his flavor to three tunesincluding a spicy solo on “So My Soul Can Sing”. The bottom end is solidly anchored by bassist Keith Jones.
The record was produced by Boustead and Paris-based writer-producer-keyboardist-programmer and singerMichael McGregor. Much of it was done long distance via the internet.
Ron’s recent performances include L.A. jazz clubsthe Catalina Jazz Festivaland regular tours of Japan. Otherwise he can be found fine-tuning other artist’s projects at legendary Precision Mastering in Hollywood.
