Though he suffers from ALS, bassist/engineer/producer Ned Mann was able to create his new jazz double-album, Finding My Way Home, doing all mixing and post duties on his computer using SmartNav, a system that gives him full control of his mouse via head movement.

“The gift of music reappearing in my life inspired me to help others,” Mann said. “I produced these all-star sessions to raise funds and awareness for ALS research. The support from the musical community has been truly amazing, with everyone from musicians to studios generously donating their time, talents and creativity. This project has been a true blessing for me, keeping me positive, focused and surrounded by great music. It shows that as long as one has hope, anything is possible.”

Mann’s brother David helped to coordinate recording sessions in New York City and then sent the digital music files to Mann for mixing and finishing at his home base in San Diego.

Finding My Way Home CDs are available from CDBaby, and as downloads from CDBaby, iTunes and Amazon MP3. All profits from Home will be donated to the ALS Association.
