Those familiar with Noel's solo work in the context of PP&M will welcome the release of FACETS, his first solo studio recording in 20 years. The 12 track CD contains, in addition to the title tune, selections previously unrecorded (BE REAL, REVOLUTION (1X1), MY FUNNY VALENTINE, BY MYSELF) as well as three instrumentals which feature his classic picking style. Bassist Richard Kniss, percussionist Sue Evans, guitarist Eddie Mottau and violinist Doug Cameron join drummer Ed Mottau, Jr, percussionist Lenny Hatch and former bodyworks band members keyboardist Denny Bouchard and electric bassist Kent Palmer in a variety of musical configurations, from duo to quintet.
