Nocturno (ARC Music, 2003)
Tango Siempre’s Nocturno, found on ARC Music, is ripe with all the sharp twists and turns and gentle caresses of the tango itself. Lush and sexy, Nocturno is the musical incantation of Pete Rosser on accordion/bandoneón, Ros Stephen on violin, Kylie Davies on double bass and Johnathan Taylor on piano. These four musicians extract the juice from every piece on this enchanting CD.
Tango fans are sure to enjoy “Silueta Porteña,” “Nocturno Tango” and “Invierno Porteña.” The classical and contemporary study of these fine musicians shines through on such pieces as “La Ultima Curda” and “Basslineloss.” “Pa’que Te Oigan, Bandoneon” speaks of the virtuosity and power of their extraordinary musicianship.
Tango Siempre’s Nocturno penetrates the soul and calls out the inner dancer.

Set in Pineboro, North Carolina, Chasing Athena’s Shadow follows the adventures of Grace, an adult literacy teacher, as she seeks to solve a long forgotten family mystery. Her charmingly dysfunctional family is of little help in her quest. Along with her best friends, an attractive Mexican teacher and an amiable gay chef, Grace must find the one fading memory that holds the key to why Grace’s great-grandmother, Athena, shot her husband on the courthouse steps in 1931. Traversing the line between the Old South and New South, Grace will have to dig into the past to uncover Athena’s true crime.
