random notes


Walt is on Chad Wackerman's latest, The View.


Walt has a solo CD due for release soon.


I just found Walt Fowler playing trumpet on 70's Johnny Guitar Watson albums "Funk beyond the call of duty" and "A real mother". I got them for years but never have seen Walt. Credits for studio engineer go to Kerry McNabb, who also did this job on a bunch of Zappa recordings.
Both of these Watson records are great, btw. (If your into 70 cool-kinda-funk-blues-pop.)


     From: "Gordon, Bud (MCI)" (Bud.Gordon@mci.com)
A little more information on Walt: He is also on a couple of Brandon Fields recordings, and Billy Cobham's "A Funky Thide of Sings". He has also toured off and on with Diana Ross.
Do you have any more information on Walt's new album........I would love to get it!  Thanks.........

Bud Gordon
