Album Notes
Several years ago I became inspired by the music of Brazil and Cuba. I set about to assemble a group of musicians and a repertoire that would reflect the profound influence this music has had on me. With the help and guidance of my friends Doug Auwarter and Gary Helm, two wonderful Latin percussionists, I immersed myself in the music. In Steve Rigazzi I found a bassist who was a kindred spirit and provided the foundation that allowed the music to soar. I have been blessed in my life to have met and worked with great jazz artists like Dizzy Gillespie, Eddie Harris, Walter Booker, and Mike Melvoin. It is an honor to share their compositions with you. The music of Michel Camilo, Cedar Walton, Bill Cunliffe, and Charlie Otwell, four of my favorite pianists, has been a great inspiration to me. I am pleased to be able to include their compositons on this recording. La Luna Negra represents the fruit of my passion for Latin jazz. It is my sincere hope that the joy I experience when performing this music can be transmuted to you, the listener.
