September 2011, update: very excited that I’ve just completed my first album! As part of the monthly jam session at the Nashville Jazz Workshop, I’ve been writing a new tune each month to showcase the jam session’s featured guest and create an open forum for players and listeners in attendance to discuss the jazz language and vocabulary. For the creation of Falling Up, I chose six of those tunes (as well as two other original compositions) to be recorded by an incredible group of Nashville musicians. I was fortunate enough to fund much of this big project with the amazing support of friends and fans through kickstarter.
Falling Up was recorded in May of 2011 and I’ve posted some excerpts from the album below. If you like what you hear please consider buying a copy!
