“Unlikely Valentine” is a hip, swinging project that comprises a mix of original tunes, with lyrics by Boustead, and fresh takes on lesser-done standards.
Ron joined on this project by a Who’s Who of the finest musicians in Southern California, including Bill Cunliffe and Mitchel Foreman, who provide the arrangements and alternately accompany Boustead on piano, Rhodes, and Hammond B3, as well as Pat Kelley on acoustic and electric guitar, Bob Sheppard on saxes and flute, Bob McChesney on trombone, Ron Stout on flugelhorn, John Leftwich on bass and Jake Reed on drums.
“…totally engrossing and fresh. [Boustead] exhibits a songwriting gift to be admired… tasty with his honest, sometimes spicy, poetic stories. This album is scheduled for a Valentine’s Day release and would make a sweet surprise for you or your loved one.” Dee Dee McNeil, Musical Memoirs
