Happy 2019

Looking back over this year, I am filled with pleasure at the wonderful people I have met, the myriad experiences I have had, the places I have been invited to, and the opportunity to get my music performed. It has been quite a year. We have so many people to thank for the fantastic times we had. We wish you all joy in this New Year, accompanied by good health! We wish you the very, very best!

I have chosen this picture taken at the Jazz Standard during our CD Release of the the six box set, Monk’s Dreams: Thelonious Sphere Monk, released by Sunnyside Communications. Frank Kimbrough led Scott Robinson, Billy Drummond and myself through all of Monk’s compositions. Seventy of them! It was an incredible and one I am very happy to have been part of.
