ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
The impetus for this project was conceived when I had the pleasure of presenting one of my compositions to Ulysses Owens, Jr. when he had arrived in Jacksonville, FL to give a master class. The resulting correspondence culminated in a collaboration featuring some of the best musicians around today. As you can hear on the record, each individual’s unique gifts are forthrightly showcased. Some of whom are local Jacksonville residents, some of whom are New York musicians, some of whom are contemporary jazz greats, all of whom I am greatly honored to call my musical peers.

This album is a portfolio of my own compositions and arrangements as well as original compositions by Christian Sands (Voyage to Somewhere) and Michael Dease (Cry of the Wolf). The collaboration of such a vast array of musicians featured on the project comes together in such a beautiful way, and the compositions are done justice without sacrificing each musician’s particular style.

I cannot offer enough thanks to all the people involved in this project. For the amazing band and our producer/drummer Ulysses Owens, Jr., who was nothing but helpful and supportive for the task’s entirety, for the quality exhibited by Bunker Studios and Dave Darlington, our sound engineer, for all of my supporters back at home, to my friends and faculty at UNF, for the teachers who started me out the right way, Jim Daniel and Carol McQueen, for my family, who have instilled in me the values upon which an undertaking of this magnitude rests, and for God, who has guided me through the years, and has brought all of these amazing people together, for what I consider to be an intended appointment - a gathering foretold.
