The idea for this album came about through my many discussions with fellow musicians over the years about the importance of keeping a true connection to this music by embracing the past, keeping it relevant in the present and solidifying its future. I have set out to create an album that pays respect to some of jazz’s most popular tunes written by trumpet players. These four standards all have a fresh take, or as I like to call them, “Classics reimagined.” To offset these brilliant classics, I included some of my own original compositions. I wrote these tunes as an invitation to the jazz world to embrace and adapt new standards for the purpose of being inclusive, accessible, and a connector for the jazz community. I firmly believe that one musician’s original is another musician’s standard.

Through this jazz experience, I want you to invite you into my space without feeling overwhelmed by too much of the unfamiliar. In other words, familiarity is how we build and sustain communities and relationships. And maybe if we plunge deep enough, we may even find our “common thread.”
