ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
For the first time in my career as a recording artist, I am releasing an album of non-original music, paying tribute to the various artists in my landscape of influence throughout the years. The purpose of this "LEGACY" project is to highlight the archetypal relationship of the music that influenced me over the years by featuring compositions/songs written by those whom I've listened to since my inception. My previous albums have all been focused on my own compositional creativity, with no previously recorded material from any artists other than myself.

This new project will feature 23 complete selections from a wide range of each of these artistic influences: Donald Fagen, Al Jarreau, Michael Jackson, Gino Vannelli, Yellowjackets, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Billy Joel, Chaka Khan, Pat Metheny, Dave Grusin, Lee Ritenour, Chick Corea, Earth, Wind, & Fire, George Duke, Chicago, Swing Out Sister, Toto, David Foster, Duke Ellington, and Dr. Billy Taylor. There will also be 2 bonus tracks of alternate takes of two of the aforementioned artist selections.

The objective of this project is to outreach to the listeners who are familiar with my original works, as well as those not so familiar; to draw a relationship of my own catalog of compositions with those who have been influential in my personal development as a creative artist.

Each of the tracks on this album are performed/produced by myself, with guest artists on select tracks: Gloria Ryann, Selan, Chris Rob, Chester Gregory, B~Free, Lili K, Khari Parker, and Marqueal Jordan. I intend for this project to aid in my outreach to the contemporary and traditional music enthusiast; threading the needle between the modernistic audience and the purists, in hopes to build a stronger audience for my original works.
