**REVIEWS, ALBUM CREDITS, BIO, RESUME & LYRICS: "Track #8 Citizens of the World is a MEGA Pop hit and should played Worldwide!" - Cal Bennett 'His Bass Guitar solos are different from Stanley Clarke, Marcus Miller and Victor Wooten. They're all great, but Augi is super melodic & his solos have so many elements. I can't really describe it, so I'll just say he's easily up there with the big boys'. - Al Goodwin (Van Nuys, Ca.) 'Holiday is a Hit, Hit, Hit'! - Kenny Burrell 'I intended on getting 1 or 2 song downloads, but 8 out of 11 songs I love! The CD price is low enough, so I bought it. Damn, I just read the credits - Augi is playing Bass, Conga's, various Percussion, Keyboards, Guitar, Vocals AND wrote / engineered the project....I'm jealous'. Jessie J. (Miami) "Track 5 is off the Hook"! The whole CD is the type that you can just put in and play - no need to skip. You've got a hit on your hands"! - Lanny Ross 'Hey Dwayne, awesome job. You've got a lot more going on than I knew. Great playing, writing, singing. Very cool stuff. It will make my drives to Agape fly by'. - Mitch Forman 'Augi, your music goes deep into the soul - in a variety of styles too. It's very musical and Melodic'. Kim Jackson 'Forget the CD, have you seen this guy Ski? He was one of the National Brotherhood of Skiers (NBS) best Mogul & Giant Slalom Ski Racers for a while (Elite category) ....and rarely went skiing! Natural raw talent. His pics still posted on his website'? - Michael {Skier - Colorado} 'I'm listening and loving the authenticity of your originals' - Zebruno (Brazil) 'I saw his band live at the Riverside Jazz Festival years ago. Too bad they came on first. His was the hottest bad (on a hot summer day!). With that high energy afro-latin jazz band, combined with his great dance moves on the Upright Bass, he should have been the headliner'! - Ralph M. - Promoter "I'm Puerto Rican, and his Salsa Bass playing is my favorite - it's fierce! But he has Soul in EVERY style he plays!! This Brother should be a household name with Bass Players'. - L. Hernandez -Bass Player (NY) 'Thanks Augi for not making another boring, generic Saxophone melody crappy Smooth Jazz CD. They all sound the same. Your songs have depth and variety. I don't have to skip tracks when I play the CD'. - Marco (Italy) 'Where has this guy been hiding? A friend from work turned me on to him. This CD is Top 10 material, but sadly, without a famous name most people will never hear of him. The music is worldly and will probably appeal to all ages. He looks like a nice guy'. - K. Shinohara (Japan) 'Damn, that's you on Steel Drums too'? Once people read the album credits....they will be blown away by AUGI'! Jerry 'Augi (I know him as Dwayne "Bass Man" Augustine ) has played with most Salsa, Jazz, R&B bands in Los Angeles. For a while, every time I looked up on the bandstand - there he was, looking over the charts. I think he preferred being freelance - so he wouldn't get bored with one band / one style. No matter who he was playing with - he shined. Oh, and he's a bad-ass salsa dancer too! Most of us musicians have no rhythm on the floor'. - B. Jones (musician) 'Nice Album cover. I bought because it caught my eye. I lucked up - all the songs are great'! - Kim L. 'Very socially conscious lyrics {one world}. The world needs his music. I like his baritone voice too'. Gabriela 'Composer, Producer, Engineer, Multi-instrumentalist and Vocalist. I just knew it would sound lame, but the CD is high quality in every aspect'. - Joe [Recording Engineer] 'Travel the World. I love it! - Kathy B. 'Is it Jazz? Latin? Pop? Not sure what to call it, but it's awesome. - B. Stein 'Burn it Down is Outstanding, Travel the World is a HIT, and Sentimental Heart is the BEST'! - Willie Davis 'Holiday is great Brasil - Samba music'. - Chantel (France) 'Wow, your CD is fabulous'. - Greg W.

Special Thanks: The creator above, that powerful energy responsible for all life forms. I am so grateful! Thank you Mom & Dad (this is for you), Kathy Brinn, all my family and friends, Agape International Spiritual Center, Rickie & Michael Beckwith, Rolling Hills Covenant Church, Greg Ondo at Cubase, David Barker at West LA Music and all the great musicians in Los Angeles who I have worked with throughout the years. Remember this: We must not allow man's greed & hunger for power destroy this precious earth! Let's all do our part by not being wasteful and help those who can't help themselves - such as those on the 'Motherland' Africa. And, like the lyrics on 'Citizens of the World' states: 'We all are the same - just distant cousins", So Peace to All - One World. Final thought: To all songwriters, singers and rappers - be conscious of your lyrics and what you say on the mic-you have more power to influence young minds than you know.
