Lynn Skinner - Vohn Regensburger, "Gems in the Rough", Vocal Eyes Music #VEM02 (2002).[CD]

This is what string arranger/conductor and co-producer of the album, Vohn Regensburger had to say to me regarding this album:

"[Gems in the Rough] is another bossa nova disc that would've featured Claudio had he lived.  He was slated to be the drummer on this recording and we greatly missed his gentle grace - although his spirit certainly guided us during the project."

In addition, within the liner notes of this album, vocalist and executive producer Lynn Skinner wrote this in the "With My Deepest Gratitude To:" section:

[To] "Claudio Slon, whose influence on and enthusiasm for this project lives on."

It is obvious to this webmaster even when listening to this album for the first time that the drum charts were arranged with Claudio's drumming style in mind.
