You Don't Have to Pay $98 for a Copy of Spiral Out

January 10, 2006

Some idiot on ebay has copies of "Spiral Out" listed as "out of print." No such thing. This scammer also is trying to get 98 bucks for a copy. The list price for the special Japan edition is only 46 bucks and most US copies are around 18. You can also get a Japan copy at DGM for around 18. Just do a search for "Willie Oteri" Spiral Out on Google and check the sites selling the CDs. Depending on your outlook this can be viewed as freedom of the seller or just plain greed. Seeing as used car dealers and Wal-Mart tend to be big flag wavers I think greed wins out here. I guess in a way I should feel honored by such high stakes as listed on ebay. Anyway, buy a copy elsewhere and enjoy.

Packing For Italy and Who Else Wants to Sell Spiral Out?

March 10. 2004

Packing for Italy and beyond. Trying to dummy proof road cases for gear but in minimum wage amerika it is getting harder and harder to do. As we mentioned before DGM has sold out of "Spiral Out" as have many other stores and we have just been informed that it will take until April to get more stock from Japan. Me thinks the label was asleep at the wheel on this one. Please go to the CD info page to find other possible outlets. BTW "Spiral Out" is available for license in the states and the EU if you are in that part of the biz and want to help out.

Laying Some New Tracks

April 15, 2004

Been a long time since I posted any news but things like life get in the way sometimes. Just back from Italy last week and resting up here in Tempe near my family and getting ready to do some work with some US bands. More on that later. Italy is a blast and the only place I know where you can pull off something like we did in Padova, a 14 hour non stop improvisation with over 50 musicians from around the globe, thanks to the genius mind of Chris Boulet. Yes, we recorded all 14 hours and have some people weeding through it, so to speak. Chris is an amazing ball of talent who was nice enough to lone me some members of his band wowwhywow for the Italian shows and was the mad brain behind what is now known as "14". Is it true that 33 and 1/3 is next?! Someone help us!

Getting some good reviews of Spiral Out in magazines like www.allaboutjazz.com, JazzTimes and www.movimentiprog.it.

Looks like I will be working with the Hellboys on the next CD sometime in August. Sounds like fun and I will give more details as they come in. The first Hellboys CD is just out with, Tony Levin, Jerry Marotta, Tony Geballe, Robert Fripp and members of California Guitar Trio all contributing. Not sure who will be on this next one but I am looking forward to laying in some tracks.

We have new "photos" and "tour dates" pages up and we will be posting more to them soon. We have a lot of photos of Italian shows to go through and some from shows in Japan as well. Most taken by my wife Sue Short who does not usually shoot band photos, but did a great job, focusing mostly on the artistic side of her craft with things like water reflections of famous places and buildings. We will post some of those soon too.

Hoping soon to build an Italian site linked to this one.

Well, that is about it for now. Watch your heads.
