Album Description

When thinking about how I wanted to make this recording, I decided to do it the old fashioned way. No rehearsals, just show up, check the music out, start playing it down, make any and all necessary changes, and then lay it down. Music recorded this way is immediate, honest, on the edge, and fresh. I wanted to make a lean, happy, accessible jazz record, an energetic album with strong melodies, inspired soloing, no fat, and lots of swinging. “Once Upon A Time In Portugal” 10 Best National (Portugal) Albums of 2016 (Arte Sonora)
