COVID notwithstanding, it's been a slow few months. Well, for gigs and performances. SOOO, I've been channeling my gig desires into recording and producing!
The first is my spring quarter record-from-home project with my two flagship ensembles: Cal Poly's Jazz Ensemble and Vocal Jazz Ensemble. Each group recorded using microphones, interfaces, and DAWs they purchased for precisely this project. They did such an amazing job that I spent last summer and part of the fall quarter producing and editing from home to prepare it for release.
And, on Friday, Feb. 19, we will celebrate the release of another time, another place: a double album that features the terrific students of Cal Poly's jazz program. Assisting on this project are some serious heavyweights - Robin Eubanks, Joe Locke, Ada Rovatti, and the immortal Randy Brecker all lent their firepower on our recordings - we are so excited!
And, I'll talk about my NEW album (already??) in a future blog.
UPDATE: It's streaming everywhere! Go to iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, etc., and get this thing!
