New CD: Resonating Abstractions

My new trio CD, titled Resonating Abstractions, is now out on Clean Feed Records. It’s a multi-part composition that was inspired by seven contemporary abstract painters and commissioned through Chamber Music America’s “New Jazz Works” award, funded by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation. It also features the phenomenal artistry of my collaborators, Christopher Tordini on bass and Dan Weiss on drums. We premiered this music on a bi-coastal tour in late 2012 that gave us time to internalize all the compositions and explore different approaches each night, and we recorded it shortly after with that same live spirit. It’s on iTunes and other digital distributors or you can order the CD directly from Clean Feed. I’ve also posted the liner notes and listening samples on this site. Enjoy listening!
