Lin & Ray are currently setting up shop in their new Ft. Worth, Texas location and will soon be appearing at local night spots all over the Dallas/Ft. Worth "Metroplex". Their new CD "Swingin' After Midnight" will be released in the early summer and will contain numerous songs featured in the duo's stage show. When asked about the new offering of music, Lin had this to say, "The new album marks a new beginning for Ray and I. Now that the desert dust has settled and the move from Vegas is over, we can concentrate on our new surroundings, as well as some light touring. We're very excited". Not only was the new CD recorded in Texas, but local Jazz musicians were used in an effort to capture a new sound. "The local jazz scene is not what one would expect from a self proclaimed Cowtown like Ft. Worth" quips Lin, "it's remarkable in that it's like a melting pot of talent between the coasts". No doubt that part of this is due to the many great music schools in the area, one of which, North Texas University, is known worldwide for it's superior jazz program.
Lin promises the new album will be what's expected of the seasoned duo, plenty of nostalgic swing in the tradition of Las Vegas. Look for there to be a CD release party in the not too distant future, most likely in their new hometown of Ft. Worth, Texas. Check back for more news.
