After a year of recording and mixing, I'm just about ready to release the album of my 8 original compositions. The music was recorded live off the floor at Canterbury Studios, by Grammy nominated engineer, Jeremy Darby. The rhythm section is comprised of Jeremy Ledbetter; piano, Max Senitt; drums, and Kobi Hass; electric and stand up bass. Special guests include: Curtis Freeman on fretless electric bass, Chris Gale on tenor saxophone, Alexis Baros on trumpet and Louis Simao on Cuica.
The music has a contemporary jazz feel, featuring strong melodic ideas and solos, interwoven with odd time signatures and unexpected but interesting twists and turns. I have melded together my love of traditional jazz and blues with some more contemporary type approaches and forms.
The cover design will feature photography by a fantastic Canadian photographer; Matt Molloy and graphic design by the very creative Kevin Ball.
This is where you come in...
I'm hoping that you will pre-purchase my CD and in doing so guarantee your copy of the CD as well as help me raise the funds needed to finish mixing, mastering and printing the CD. I'm looking forward to sharing this music with you!
