 Notes & Reviews
NOTE: A portion of all sales of this CD will go to support dog-related nonprofit organizations. Gregg's long-awaited follow-up to his100-instrument 'A Christmas Collection' is a tribute to man's best friend. Enlisting the help of several dog-loving friends (and fantastic musicians) - Stephen Bennett, Joe Morgan, Carter Lancaster, Brad Hoyt and Frank Doucette - the friends created 16 'instrumental musical snapshots' of the dogs they've known and loved, and telling their stories in the fully illustrated, full color booklet. Fingerstyle guitar champ Don Alder calls Miner 'the Frank Zappa of the harp guitar.' Miner prefers to think of his music as 'lovely, but quirky.' This is the couple-years-in-the-works 'Dog Project' - his wife's idea; Jaci Rohr, who among many other talents, has a pet products side business, Two Little Dogs. She and Gregg co-produced this album as a tribute to their four-legged friends, and are donating a portion of each CD sale to dog-related charities. We invited several dog-loving friends to contribute. All are part of the harp guitar community and you'll find plenty of harp guitar on this album, along with 6-string guitar, harp, hammered dulcimer, piano, and a few other unusual odds and ends. All tunes are brand new, except for 3 of Stephen Bennett's 4 tunes, and Joe Morgan's, which are brand new, edited re-mixes. As Jaci says, 'you'll laugh, you'll cry, your dogs will wag their tails.' More about the co-producers: Besides running her Two Little Dogs business, Jaci Rohr also works in product development for Cesar Millan, Inc. When Cesar's show 'The Dog Whisperer' first went into production, Gregg wrote 'Cesar's Arrival Theme' (listen when he gets out of the car and runs up to the owner's door...). The show is now in it's 6th Season on National Geographic cable, and also on DVD.
