Album Notes
I told my teacher Frank Wilkins that I had never written an original composition. He responded “So write one!”
That led to "Nine Miles Wide" in 2003. I was 40 years old.

I started writing songs with lyrics a few years later, inspired along the way by places I’ve been ("In The Lounge"), phrases and conversations I heard ("An August Day In April", "The Bar Where I Belong", "All I Ever Lost", "Let’s Wander"), and musings on life ("When The Morning Comes"), love ("The Heart Says", "Without You") and even current events ("Alternative Facts").

I wrote "Making Up For Lost Time" while reflecting on my active and unanticipated musical life in Washington, DC. I dedicate this album to the vibrant jazz community of the DC region. I’m grateful to the players and listeners who make this a supportive and inspiring environment for all of us.

The return of traditional jazz
The diversity of musicianship, class and professionalism presented here made this a standout project. Oren, you have fine musicians and vocalists. Congratulations! I believe you were able to make up for lost time by making up for the lack in good jazz music today. Very nice work. I look forward to listening to this project, often. Please continue to put out good music like this. Thanks!
