A few words from the Producer, Jeff Berkley
I’ve served with Cej on the road for 12 years and on several records by now. Technically, Cej is schooled in all the “Mel Bay” techniques and knows his scales and his whoodely whoodelies backwards and forwards. He’ll even do that if it’s called for. That, however, is not what defines his genius.
There’s something more to it. There’s an ancient musicality … a feeling that his music has always been. I don’t mean the notes, which are exquisite and which I have lifted for my own performances on more than one occasion. I mean there’s a “thing” when Cej plays. It hangs in the air like blueberries in pancakes on Sunday morning. It’s grounding and playful and innocent and wise. There’s a timeless sound and a feeling you’ve never felt before. I learned more than notes playing with Cej.
