Album Description

I have been continually blessed throughout my professional career with opportunities to compose or arrange music for an endless variety of performances and recordings. A gratifying consequence is that I have heard my works interpreted by some of the best players and ensembles in the world. Whether leading my own groups or completing commissions for others, I always immerse myself completely in the task at hand. It never gets old and I would be hardpressed to remember any times that I was not thoroughly fulfilled after a performance of my music. Throughout all, The Eleventet has been my passion. As of this recording, the ensemble has been on the scene for over thirty-five years! Although there have been a few lulls, The Eleventet has stayed active for the majority of that time, in different locales and always with top-rank players. From the early years in Boston, through brief periods in central Maine(!) and New York City, and now from our ongoing Philadelphia years, there is a long trail of performances and recordings—including some great bootleg recordings, many in my possession. In 2000, a little over a decade after my arrival in Philadelphia, I resolved to put together a permanent edition of The Eleventet and to establish a dynamic presence. Consequently, we have played at many notable locales and events, but it is through the longstanding residency at Plays and Players Theater in Philadelphia that I have solidified our recognition. The theater is a wonderful venue for outstanding and cutting-edge stage productions, and it also happens to be a hip location for live music. We have a wonderful relationship. In early 2017, I will direct The Eleventet in its one-hundredth performance at the theater! I have about 250 charts in the book now and, as long as I am able, I am not letting up. What a great ride it has been—and will continue to be! We WILL blow your faces off! Thank you, thank you, thank you—a million thank you’s—to the astounding, world-class members of The Eleventet! I love you all. You make both the music and the experience special beyond words. And a huge thank you to John Anthony, a brilliant engineer and my good friend.

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
