This is my second CD, it’s a recording of some of my favorite songs. They include a variety of standards, most of them firmly established in the jazz genre. My choice of the upbeat tunes was based on their natural swinging rhythm, and I love to swing. I chose the ballads because I can feel the lyrics composed by the song writers. I consider them poignant and touching.
Then there are two other selections, one a really beautiful Bossa (“My Little Boat”), which is just so romantic, and the other (“How little We Know”), gives some important insight into the nature of human relations. I’m proud to say that this music we call jazz is a passion for me, as I know it is for many others.
I believe this CD upholds the best tradition of the music, by way of a quality production. Certainly, my band gave me all the support I needed and I was blessed to have had some of the baddest cats with me on the NYC scene today. I was particularly honored to have special guests Patience Higgins, Kenyetta Beasley, and Eric Wyatt (my nephew) commanding the horn section on the date. Their addition to my regular world-class rhythm section of Marcus Persiani, Eric Lemon, and Darrell Green made the session a joy. In addition, Michael Broby’s recording studio ensured that the sound was done right. Finally, the orchestration of our studio sessions and much of the success of this project was due to Rob Crocker, radio personality on WBGO-FM. Enjoy!
