Latest Recording – History Gets Ahead of the Story – Featuring Jeff Lederer on saxophone and John Medeski on organ…check it out!

“Over the years, way too much improv has been flung into the realm without a clear grasp of the past. It is not that way with History Gets Ahead Of The Story, which cleverly integrates both mainstream and progressive tradition into the wonderfully refreshing world that it is unto itself.” – Francois van de Linde, Jazz Journal UK

Kimbrough – Newvelle RecordsI am incredibly grateful and proud to be part of such an ambitious project to celebrate the music of my friend Frank Kimbrough. This is such a beautiful tribute that showcased Frank’s unique compositions and spirit. He was a huge champion for me and I miss him very much. I was on two tracks with two very different bands, please support this release as all proceeds are going to a scholarship at Juilliard in Frank’s name. You can learn more about the other musicians who took part in this project at Newvelle Records.
