My New CD collaboration:
I'm happy to report that my progress on the new CD with Dana Countryman is going well!
We are working very hard in the recording studio, and are currently bringing
in some extra musicians to add some nice touches to the tunes.

We are currently talking to a label for this project, which includes
10 new Perrey/Countryman compositons, as well as 4 tunes from other composers.
Dana and I plan to have the new CD out by August of 2006. Everything is on schedule!

Dr. Robert Moog
1934 - 2005
I'm very sad to report that my friend, Bob Moog, genius-inventor of the Moog synthesizer, passed away on August 21st, 2005.

Without his amazing instrument, I certainly could not have achieved all the success I have had with my music, and I will be forever grateful for his contribution to popular music, and in helping me set up my Moog in my NYC studio, back in the '60s.

Rest well, Bob.

Summer, 2003-Winter, 2004: Jean Jacques Perrey's music has been heard in hundreds of commercials. Currently, his tune "E.V.A." can be heard in the Zelnorm commercial. Zelnorm is a women's irritable bowel syndrome medicine. If you've seen this commercial, it's hard to forget. It features various 30-something aged women, lifting the bottoms of their shirts to reveal different words. What a concept!



A note from Dana Countryman, former editor/publisher for Cool and Strange Music Magazine:

Winter, 2004: "I am currently working on a book on Jean Jacques' life and amazing music. I've already interviewed Mssr. Perrey for a week, while at his home in Europe in the summer of 2003. I have also interviewed his daughter Patricia in her home in Switzerland, and I'm in the process of interviewing many of his friends and musical associates here in America, including Vinnie Bell, Gershon Kingsley, Angelo Badalameni, Lisa Haugen-Davis, David Chazam, Billy Mure, Jack Diamond, Vic Vale and many others. More info on this, as it develops."
