Welcome to the June issue of Ran’s monthly newsletter. Ran is relaxing and enjoying his summer break but says he has no news to report. So we will just pass along a couple of tidbits.

Out of the Shadows, Ran’s new duet album with vocalist Christine Correa, received another favorable blog review. On blogcritics.org, Jordan Richardson writes: “It is a shocking, beautiful, strange piece of work … and it has been haunting my speakers for several days now with its ethereal, graceful qualities.” Read the whole review here.

One sealed copy of That Certain Feeling has surfaced from a colleague of Ran’s. This is one of Ran’s rarest CDs, so the best way to give everyone an equal crack at it is to put it up on eBay. If you’re interested, bid on it here.
