Album Notes
Years ago, back when I was still teaching jazz improvisation at Houston's High School for the Performing and Visual Arts, Tim Hagans was a guest at the school. He gave a jazz masterclass and spent most of the time talking about how to practice free improvisation. At the end of the masterclass, Tim said something like, "now this is your assignment, spend thirty minutes a day playing free."

I took his "assignment" seriously and made a serious effort to spend time freely improvising on a regular basis. Today, many years later, I can tell you that it has changed the way I improvise. Tim Hagan's masterclass helped to transform me as a jazz trumpet player to something more creative.

That's why we are calling this track, "Extra Credit." It's a play on the whole assignment thing.

So this one is for Tim Hagans. I tip of the hat to not only a wonderful player, but also an eloquent speaker on freedom in jazz.
