First Love

As if he hadn’t given us enough pan music to last many lifetimes, Ray now introduces us to his new super power, singing. The First Love CD shows another side of this gifted composer, arranger and performer, whose published music is now near 100. Hearing him interpret his music in words is a treat for all appreciative ears of these wonderful melodies. The ten compositions he chose for this CD covers a wide range of the kind of music he has delivered for fans in the past 50 years. The arrangements are masterpieces by a group of musicians whose love for Ray’s music is evident in their interpretations. First Love was recorded and mixed in California, where he has run pan workshops at Humboldt State University in Arcata, and was a Commissioned Composer at California State University,
