JazzMando What's New - Some great music for you to download for your listening pleasure--West Coast multi-instrumentalist/composer, Tim Ware was years ahead of his time in the "New Acoustic Music" scene, and as early as 1979, was recording some groundbreaking music with other San Francisco Bay Area musicians. He ran in circles with the likes of Darol Anger, Mike Marshall, and the Dawg himself (along with many of the revolving Dave Grisman Quintet members).

Two terrific albums were recorded in the early 80s, and are available for you free to download on the Hyperarts.com Website:

Wow, what a generous deal! I had the original LPs at some point. Tim was/is cool.
