An instrumental journey by


Brian Ascenzo

Brian's instrumental album 'How Many Worlds?'
is available on CD Baby, itunes and other webstores.
The 14 song record features a wide variety
of moods and styles, mixing solo and ensemble pieces.
Some wonderful performances from Brian's colleages
across the nation round out the effort, including;

Reknowned 'Fowler Brother' Tom Fowler on bass and violin.
Las Vegas favorite Erika Syroid on violin.
Raymond Sicam III adds a moving cello solo to "So Far',
which also features a teasingly brief appearance from
Trumpet/Flugelhorn man Mike Gonzales.
Orlando stalwart Jim Lucas adds some bass, and
Detroit's irrepressible Rob Emanuel on drums.
Fellow Motowner Dennis Sheridan compliments the poignant
closer 'Sunday Evening' with an ethereal tablas track.

The first single, 'Clouds Wander',
has been added to the myspace player.

Now available on itunes and many other download sites!!
