Amazing Things Art CenterJon's 2nd solo CD, "Old School Moderne," has been completed and was released on October 30. A CD release party was held at Amazing Things Arts Center in Framingham on that date to an extremely enthusiastic crowd. 

Old School Moderne is an eclectic album touching on a variety of American musical genres including folk, blues, rhythmic and blueish rock & roll, gospel, a boogie, and a bit of pop. Lyrical themes range from personal observation to political commentary, tempered by a little horror movie humor (Dr. Frankenstein and The Wolfman make cameo appearances) and a pie in the face for TV meteorologists. Overall, the album reflects Jon's mindset and history during an era of dramatic change in the American social landscape and the sense that modernity may yield even greater change.
