Gato Get George's New Album!Origin's composer of classic (WC3-Prophecy) music, George Oldizey, has released his first solo CD! The genre for the album is latin jazz, and it sounds very warm, fun, happy, and maybe even a little bit familiar to Wing Commander fans. You can listen to a preview at Mr. Oldziey's Soundcloud page, or pick up a copy at Amazon.com, iTunes and CDBaby. His band, Gato 6, will also be holding a release party on September 7 in Austin, Texas. Sounds like fun!
Hi guys! Hope all is great on your end! Just wanted to let the Wing Commander community know that, after decades of composing music for other people (games, films, documentaries, etc.) I'm finally releasing a project of my own original Latin Jazz music on my band GATO 6's new CD, "El Viento". Yours truly composed (except for ONE cover), arranged, recorded and mixed all the tunes on the CD. It hits CDBaby, Amazon, iTunes, and many other digital distribution outlets tomorrow (Thursday, August 23rd). If you'd like to get a preview you can check out my Soundcloud page.
Hope all is wonderful in the Wing Commander Universe!
