All albums are available at CDBaby, itunes and other re-sellers in digital and physical format.


I collect a variety of instruments: Here I am performing on a 1910 StrohViol. Used for early acoustic recordings, later as a novelty in vaudeville shows. Ian Whitcomb on the piano…from the J.Klein Japan Tour Nov.20th, 2004 @Harajuku Blue Jay Way/ Tokyo Photo by: Eriko Oka
