Among his production projects is the audio series “Americana – A Mosaic of American Music” which

the documentary "Blind Willie's Blues," which Video Librarian called "nothing less than the economic,
social, and historical evolution of America's indigenous music.” He co-produced and wrote the liner
notes for “Piano Red – The Lost Atlanta Tapes,” which was released in August 2010 on Landslide
