Thank you for clicking here. Already, you have a heart.
The music "business" is suffering and it becomes more and more difficult for musicians to put out recordings. I am attempting to self-release my sophomore album with the help of some of the best talent there is in the jazz community, from the musicians to the production team.
Completing my band, I have Gerald Clayton (piano), Sam Minaie (bass), Kevin Kanner (drums), Graham Dechter (guitar), Gilbert Castellanos (trumpet) and Matt Garrison (tenor sax). If you are already a jazz fan, most of these names need no explanation. For those unfamiliar, they have played with the biggest names in music: Stevie Wonder, Michael Buble', Diana Krall, Natalie Cole, Roy Hargrove, etc. They have performed on Grammy nominated recordings and have themselves received Grammy nominations.
My production team begins with producer, John Clayton. Grammy nominated bass player, John Clayton has held the Artistic Director chair for Jazz at the Hollywood Bowl. He has arranged music for and/or performed with Diana Krall, Natalie Cole, Nancy Wilson, Quincy Jones, George Benson, Gladys Knight, Queen Latifah and many others. He arranged Whitney Houston's 1990 rendition of the "Star-Spangled Banner" performed at the 1990 Super Bowl.
Joining me in the studio are the following stellar musicians:
Gerald Clayton - piano
Sam Minaie - bass
Kevin Kanner - drums
Graham Dechter - guitar
Gilbert Castellanos - trumpet
Matt Garrison - tenor sax
My wonderful engineer Don Murray is returning to his post at the board for the second time and John Clayton is steering this ship to make sure this recording is truly special!"
Engineer, Don Murray and Masterer, Doug Sax have recorded and polished the best of the best for over four decades, including Elton John, Michael Jackson, Mariah Carey, Whitney Houston, Seal and Earth, Wind & Fire.
We need your help to produce the best product possible, so that it can be seen and heard all around the world!
