This is the 7th CD in twelve years for Maurice and his eighth over all including the earlier “Jazz Sunrise” debut mentioned below. All of his CD’s are tied together with his saxophones, flutes, compositions, production and engineering skills.

Maurice completed studies at Boston's world renown Berklee College of Music in Composition and Performance. He also received a National Endowment For The Arts scholarship to study under Jazz legend Lew Tabackin. Of his first CD “Jazz Sunrise” Billboard Magazine said, “Maurice is a man to hear.” In addition to leading his own band, Maurice was a featured soloist with The Marcelo Berestovoy Band, New Pacific (a band that combines Indonesian and other Asian music with Jazz) and was Music Director/performer with “The Hues Corporation” (Rock The Boat) for over 10 years. He currently is a member of Latin Rock/Soul legend Little Willie G’s band.

In 1988 he opened his recording studio Maurice Gainen Productions in Los Angeles’ hipster enclave of Silver Lake, just east of Hollywood. Since then, he has produced, recorded, mixed and mastered too many CDs to count in all genres including Jazz, Alternative, Rap, R&B, Rock, Broadway and World Music. He has also played flute and/or sax on many of these CDs. He does CD Mastering for all of the major record labels and his recent credits include over 185 CD’s for Starbucks. Songs recorded in his studio have appeared in many movies and TV shows.

Details about Maurice and all of his CD’s are available on his website. Just take the link on this page.
