ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Channeling Mary's music covers a range of styles, from pop to rock to jazz to funk to latin/mariachi. They have had songs published for licensing by Transition Music (look for those selections later, as soon as the legal details get worked out.)

Channeling Mary's roots go way back. Beau James Nokes started out with Perspiration (even then, the band names were good) where he played trumpet--and not all that well by his own admission. Perspiration's recordings were captured on a low-quality cassette tape that has not survived the ages. Black Orchid was next (his mom was disturbed because she thought he was writing about drugs, but he was 12 years old and didn't know what drugs were, really.) After he picked up the guitar, he was a founding member of Rubber Dog (some old demos are coming eventually.) Rubber dog marked his first recordings with sax great Anthony Nokes--whose beautiful sax solo graces "Legal Weed This Christmas." Then on to Toby Volt & the Flagella (where Anthony also provided tasty sax work.) Shari Elizabeth Manusov (now Shari Elizabeth Nokes) joined Toby Volt & The Flagella during the last year of its existence. When the Flagella disbanded--its members winding up in 4 different states--Beau and Shari formed Russen Frussen where, again, Anthony provided great sax work. Channeling Mary is the direct descendant of Russen Frussen, with Beau, Shari and Anthony comprising the core of the band. Some great singers/players have contributed to the oeuvre as well, and their work is/will be credited on individual tracks as they are released.
