My CD “Elaine’s Song” is a product born out of the desire to make a CD documenting some of my original compositions. I’ve worked on this
music over the past two years in order to complete this task. Two tunes are dedicated to a couple of my favorite, inspirational musicians out
there today, Kenny Garrett and Jeff “Tain” Watts. These pieces were composed with them totally and completely in mind. “Elaine’s Song”, the
tune, is dedicated to my wife, who without, I would not be able to follow my dreams. “Gryfinndor’s Revenge” is a Harry Potter reference written
for my three boys. “Falling Grace” is a Steve Swallow tune, one of my very favorite and “Straight Street” is a John Coltrane tune that you
don’t hear very often. All in all, each tune on this CD has it’s own personal purpose for me. My goal was to get to the very highest level of creativity
with some of the best players you’ll hear anywhere. I think I’ve achieved this and I hope that it translates through your listening.
