World on a String-A fantastic quintet, with two incredible soloists, Donny McCaslin (sax/flute) and Helio Alves (piano) playing my original music and arrangements, mixing Jazz, Brazilian, Latin and World influences into a wonderful whole!
Trio Concertant-An incredible group I was in with two monster classical musicians, Dennis James on bass and Annabelle Hoffman on cello. Dennis is a true classical virtuoso, and also a great jazz player - we did all of our own arrangements of classical, jazz and Brazilian music.
Your Place or Mine-A duo CD with my Bob Kindred on tenor sax, who was a wonderful musician and dear friend. We did all great standards and one original tune each. It also features his wife Anne Phillips singing one tune of hers.
Euforia-A fantastic trio with two stellar musicians, Santi Debriano on bass and Vanderlei Pereira on drums - dynamic, highly interactive playing, an eclectic jazz/Braz/latin fusion, and a great set of originals and some jazz tunes rearranged.
Brasil and Company-With the wonderful singer Vera Mara, a group we had in the 1990’s. Beautiful Brazilian repertoire, including two originals of mine and two from her brother, the fantastic pianist Cidinho Teixeira (who also plays on the CD) with great grooves and guest musicians.
Blues for Henry Miller-My very first trio recording, originally on vinyl!! With two wonderful musicians I played with all the time in my Brooklyn days, bassist Dick Sarpola and drummer/composer Mark Plank. All original tunes and one standard.
