This idea came to me when I was experimenting with picking arpeggiated chords on acoustic guitar. As it evolved, I added celli, bass and percussion. My brother Andy suggested I add some melodies on top, so I added a "Di Meola" style melody and acoustic guitar solo over the top. When my daughter Malory heard it, she named it Zion after one of the most gorgeous National Parks I've taken her to.
Zion was recorded in my home studio in Bellingham, WA. I performed and recorded all the tracks myself. The instrumentation is 2 acoustic steel string guitars, 2 celli, electric bass and percussion. A very special thanks to my ultra talented brother, Andy, who did the final mixing and mastering in his home studio in Chino Hills, CA.
