Angelo Torres of MAD magazine / Tales of the Crypt fame is the artist of the magnificent cover art for their album!!!
I know some of you have been waiting a LONG Time for Pam and the Band to record again. Well - this is your year! Starting last February, Fearless Dreamer went back to Park West Studios in Brooklyn, and finished recording 9 new original songs with our recording engineer Jim Clouse.
We are working on the Album Cover Art now, and hope to have this music in your ears in a couple of months.
The group has a telepathic ability to bring out the best in each other. Thank you, Allen Won (saxes and flute), Jim West (piano and keys), Peter Calo (acoustic and electric guitars), Leo Traversa (bass), and Todd Isler (drums, hadjini, kanjira) - (oh yeah, and me on trumpet and flugelhorn)
---In the meantime, if you don't yet have a copy of the Halloween moody album "Rise And Dance", by Pam Fleming's Dead Zombie Band - don't procrastinate.

The documentary “Windfall” shows the bitter rancor sowed among the residents of rural Meredith, N.Y., when the wind turbines came to town. When a multi-national corporation offers to revitalize a rural farm town's failing economy with a new industry, residents believe they have found the solution to their economic problems. But the townspeople grow increasingly alarmed as they discover that the company's plans for their town are far from anything they could have ever predicted.
