New Mike Baggetta

Mike Baggetta - Guitarist & Composer

**New CD out now**

I'm really happy and excited to let you all know about my brand new CD release, Thieves and Secrets, out now from the Fresh Sound New Talent label! This is my 3rd release for the label and it has been a great relationship for me and my music. I've been working hard for many years on developing an individual voice on the guitar in music and I truly feel that this latest recording is an excellent example of that...

I'm once again joined here by some of the best bandmates a fella could ask for: Jason Rigby on Saxophones, Eivind Opsvik on Bass and George Schuller on Drums. We have a CD release concert in NYC coming up on Thursday June 5th... details below!

If you are interested to purchase this work, you can either:

1. write me back and deal directly with me!
2. visit the Fresh Sound Webpage to order a physical copy
3. oh, you want iTunes...?
4. visit a couple of excellent REAL record shops: Downtown Music Gallery or The Bop Shop
5.'s on your preferred digital music STORE

You can also here a teaser track of the album HERE
