I WAITED FOR YOU “goes from a baroque mood to a rhythmic jazzy feel continuously. It marries orchestra and groove seamlessly, climaxing at points where then, it can only resolve gracefully as in does with the flugle horn soliloquy, as it expresses an immanent ending.” Get it here on CD Baby or your favorite site.
IS THAT ME depicts a challenge of two trumpets . . . a portrayal of a lover’s quarrel perhaps. The end is seemingly an unresolved conclusion that remains open for continued debate. It makes a statement that pronounces ‘OK . . . I give in, for now.’ Get it here on CD Baby or your favorite site.
GOING AWAY HAPPY is lush, lovely and bright. You’ll hear words where there are none. The mood of the piece transcends to a whispering groove . . . engulfing muted trumpet styling that expresses softly ending in a textured third mood, finally cascading the listener inwardly toward a solemn jazz resolution. Get it here on CD Baby or your favorite site.
