Explodes and Disappears
Walter rocks a sweet Spanish melody, swings a sexy jazz number, and then reaches deep for a soulful expression of values in a troubled world. He tops it all with a funky number chronicling three American misfits searching for peace of mind and headed for disaster on the shores of Mexico -- all skillfully blended into a seamless flow. Original release April 12, 2016 - Sonic Pyramid.
