After a year in the making, isolated inside our 2920 rancho Pequeño, my sophomore CD Park North has been completed. I think you will enjoy these eight new rhythm patterns and memorable themes. I am honored to have pianist Ruben Gutierrez, bassist Curt Bushaw, saxophonist Frank Zona, and Pat 'Guitar Slim' Chase join me on a few songs. I am also honored to have vocalist Joshua Lucero perform on Wherever, Whenever. Here are a few quotes from listeners: Richard Kadzis, Voice of the Rio Grande "James Murphy has the skill and style to readily cross over from blues to jazz, as his latest album release, Park North, demonstrates. Tracks like 'Stone Edge' flow like the sounds are coming from the guitar of Wes Montgomery. Karina Bugarini – A Premier dance choreographer, artist, and musician/songwriter from Mexico City states, “Park North is a sublime trip that incorporates genius elements from jazz and blues. It starts from a deep atmosphere surrounded by the awe-inspiring riffs of Murphy’s guitar. The melodic guitar solos and sublime bends are filled with rhythm, movement and groove. In this work, no instrument can be overlooked since every one of them has a deep presence and personality.” Guitarist ‘German’ Mike Gienapp states, “That’s totally different from anything I have ever heard from you. First of all, really good musicians. It sounds very clean, very smooth and very intellectual. Almost perfect. You did a really fine job. P.S. I hope that we get a chance to play together.”
