Music is art. Jazz is American art.

These are two posits that, in my view, have almost entirely been forgotten in America, perhaps the entire world. In a world of ROI driven disposable entertainment that is usually streamed or compressed losing whatever essence it originally had, the human race is slowly and surely being deprived of two of its greatest merits: music and jazz. It is my wish that this second album of mine be a counter to this trend, wholly and vehemently insisting that music is art and jazz is intrinsically American art.

With these intents codified, as with my first album, I am trying to push the boundaries of the art form while not throwing the baby out with the bath water. Innovation is not innovation if it’s only for innovation’s sake, and a work of art ought to imply the standards by which it is to be judged. A successful work of art must be authentically original, but also originally authentic. All artists struggle with the balancing act of creativity versus function, challenging versus palatability, surprise versus inevitability. In my view a successful artist is a master of this balancing act, and I hope you find something here that achieves it!

As always, thanks to the stellar musicians whose hard work and interest in my music make this dream a reality. Huge thanks to Rich Breen and Sam Rabourn for their tireless work in the control booth and the mixing and mastering studio. A special thanks to my late aunt Peggy Gizewski, who in her life was an adamant fan of my music, and in her death provided me with the means to produce this album. This album is entirely dedicated to her, may God rest her soul.

Blessed be God forever…
