Marlo penned five songs with motivational speaker Denise Cook aka The Oracle (winner of two Billboard Spoken Word awards) for her new CD The ORACLE Speaks ... just because. Marlo is still a sought after producer and session player. Great musicians improve with time. I am a big fan of Marlo's playing style and the sound of the guitars in his collection.
