Hunter College Popular Music Combo CD is up...

Here's the Hunter College Popular Music Combos 2015-16 CD (directed/produced/mixed by myself, with guest director Nick Didkovsky doing the same for 2 of the tunes). The CD features 3 student originals out of the 8 total tunes, plus arrangements of pop music ranging from Seal, Amy Winehouse, to Lissie and Fetty Wap. It was done "guerrilla style" with each group allowed 1 hour in the studio (with "guerrilla mixing" done later in my and Nick's home studios :-)):
