Current Musical Projects

This is just a mere sampling–an app a teaser–as I’ve recorded and played on too many sessions to count…

2014-15: Recorded with Chris Patry, Musician in Silver Spring, MD… Chris recorded guitars and bass; Evan J. played drums, keys, & percussion.  I produced this in my recording studio… This original tune is entitled, “clavifunkyou.”

 

July, 2015: Collaboration with Robert Cozart & Evan Jacobson, “From the outside in…” Rob wrote the music and produced the final recording; I played the drum parts, which were described to me over the phone. Rob has an incredible gift for orchestration, collaboration, producing, and not afraid to write in any genre.

 

2014 Recorded and Produced 6 total tracks for another college bud, Randall Liller, formerly with  Stoned MonKY; you can find them and the recorded tracks on Facebook and Reverb Nation…This dark & moody rocking track is called “Pride…”

 

2014 & beyond… Recorded and produced a few tracks for Gary Slavinsky, Music Therapist & Musician, Reisterstown, MD. He needed a demo of some acoustic guitar and Jazz Standards to entertain the folks in the Baltimore County area.  Gary played acoustic guitar, bass, and sang.  His daughter made a guest appearance to cover the Carly Simon Track, “Angel From Montgomery.”  The vocals on the chorus are just beautiful, and I added percussion and produced this cover version in my recording studio:

Here are some past Pre-Maryland projects…

On July 26, 2010, I played my final gig at MS424 with my Principal, Dr. Hughes (Bronx’s famous Johnny Seven group), Kevin on guitar from (PS48), and Jose Guzman, the infamous Safe Room keeper. We performed:  Wipe Out, All Along the Watchtower, Wooly Bully, La Bamba/Twist & Shout, Gloria, and Johnny B. Goode. The energy was high and the crowd went crazy (just like The Beatles).  The good doctor has retired from the NYC Board of Education, but you can still catch him playing in the Bronx at the Beal Bocht Cafe.  He is a highly inspirational man, loaded with talent, and has a heart of gold.  

 

Cover of “Wipe out…” It’s recorded live in an auditorium in da Bronx–recorded with a tape recorder, but you can still here drums!

 

Here’s a brief history of Antagonist/Premonition… Jeff “Twitch” Francesconi is the mastermind behind all of this dynamic music ranging from parody to death metal to harmonic rock and love ballads. Jeff plays guitar, bass, keys, and sings; Pete Pineyro adds further guitar dimension and vocals; Evan J. plays drums, percussion, some vocals, and drinks too much coffee. All music is written by Jeff Francesconi and you can find him on Facebook where he obsesses over football and fly fishing…

Pictured below:  A tableaux with Jeff, Pete, and Evan J…

In 2009, my musical focus has shifted directions... I'm actively recording with Antagonist/Premonition
Jeff (upper left) imitates the late Dio, Evan J. is on the right and balding, & Pete is extremely elated in front…

Here’s is Jeff’s tune entitled “Mars…” Drums (double bass insanity) performed by Evan “Lars” Jacobson:

Here’s another one of Jeff’s tunes entitled “Trapped in a dream…” Jeff and Pete shared the guitar duties; I played drums…This track is psychedelic, so buckle your seatbelt:
