Here's another music video slideshow, this one of "Songbird," one of our mst requested originals. It features the vocals of Samia Panni, flute solo by Bob Antolin, me on Piano, Jeff Busch on Brazilian percussion, Johnny Conga on Latin percussion, Ed Mays on Drumset, and in this case, bassist Marc Miller, who relocated to Atlanta soon after the recording. The phothgraphy for the video is done by my friend Septhanto Floribertus. The photos are from recent Yoginis perormances, so the bass player in the video is my current bassist Burt Boice.
