I would like to take the time and share with you my new recording, WHAT IS NOW.
It was conceived as a vinyl release so there are two sides to it. Side A contains an abstract sound composition entitled, Migration Suite: Music for Woodwinds and Jazz Ensemble. This recording was recorded live in Berlin in September 2019.
Side B contains two songs, Southern Wind and Rumba Blues, that were recorded during the initial Covid-19 lockdown during the months of April, May, and June. These songs were recorded in various parts of the world. I called friends in London, Los Angeles, and Tucson who had the ability to record at home. The music reflects much more of coming home for me and a different style from Side A.
I have a wide variety of tastes and I wanted to share these with you. I know I demand a lot from the listener but that is how I work. These are meaningful compositions to me, hence the limited vinyl release. I hope you can hear something that you can connect with on this special recording.
The process for me was a cathartic experience. It digs deep into my subconscious about human belonging.
